A point or two more than that.”He also said he expected “modest” margin improvement after two years of stable margins of 7.4 per cent, when Logica cuts costs to tackle a drop in demand for major IT projects. He said: “This is the year when we believe we can start to move the margins up.”Brokerage Numis said the sting in the tail was a £30m restructuring charge that would drag first-half margins below the level seen a year ago, meaning the group would have to deliver a challenging second-half margin of more than nine per cent.Numis said: “The demand backdrop is improving, costs appear well controlled and Logica’s improvement is gathering momentum, but this first half outlook feels like it has taken the wind out of Logica’s sails.”The European environment for IT services has started to improve after a tough two years when companies cut IT upgrade projects to save costs.Logica’s rival Cap Gemini has guided for nine to ten per cent revenue growth this year and Atos Origin is also looking for growth. Logica has received a boost from banks seeking guidance on how to comply with tough new regulation.

England name Sevens squad for Gold Coast opener

(Photo by Warren Little/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Points pony: Mat Turner heads to the Gold Coast for the opening HSBC World Sevens Series legENGLAND NAME their 12-man squad for the first leg of this season’s HSBC Sevens World Series.The Gold Coast Sevens on October 13-14 is the first event of the new Olympic sport’s biggest ever season, which sees nine legs of the global series followed by the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow next June.Head Coach Ben Ryan has the top two try-scorers in world sevens in the shape of Mathew Turner and Dan Norton in an experienced squad led by Rob Vickerman that contains 10 players who have won major international tournaments.The England Sevens programme has expanded to 19 full-time players this season, increasing strength in depth and competition for places, and making selection for Ryan tougher than ever.“Every training session is very competitive and everyone pushes each other on – we’ve had a fair bit of niggle over the last few months, too, because everyone’s been itching to get on the plane,” said Ryan. “That competition for places has given us some very healthy dilemmas when it comes to selection and we’ve left players out who will have an important role to play in our title bid. Among those who miss out on the trip to Australia is former World Player of the Year Ollie Phillips.“One or two injuries have put him a couple of weeks away from his absolute best but he’ll be in great shape by the time we get to legs two and three in Dubai and Port Elizabeth,” Ryan added.There are two changes to the squad that appeared in the Marriott London Sevens, the final leg of last season’s series. Returning from injury are playmakers Marcus Watson and Christian Lewis-Pratt – who both featured in England’s Dubai tournament victory last year – with Sam Edgerley and Dan Bibby making way. England, who finished third in last year’s series, face Kenya, Spain and Samoa on the Gold Coast opening day at Skilled Park with Australia and Fiji potential quarter final opponents.Sevens squad:John Brake, Chris Brightwell, Chris Cracknell, Christian Lewis-Pratt, Tom Mitchell, Dan Norton, Tom Powell, James Rodwell, Mathew Turner, Rob Vickerman (Captain), Marcus Watson, Jeff Williamslast_img read more

Proposal to change provincial representation on Executive Council draws questions

first_img The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Kit Wang says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The Governance and Structure Committee on July 5 struggled with the question of how to ensure that the geographical areas covered by the Episcopal Church’s nine provinces receive adequate representation on Executive Council under a proposed resolution submitted for its consideration.Resolution A075 proposes to ensure “diverse representation on Executive Council” by including representatives from the provinces but allowing the election of the representatives to be held at General Convention rather than as part of provincial elections.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.“I’m troubled by all elections going through one centralized committee,” said Colorado Deputy Lawrence Hitt II, a committee member. “I don’t think it’s healthy for the church.” Currently, two representatives to Executive Council are elected by each of the nine provinces.The resolution was submitted by the Task Force to Study Provinces. The task force was enabled by a resolution to eliminate provinces that was presented at the 78th General Convention. Resolution D011 charged the task force with studying the potential effects of eliminating the provinces and to consider what structures might replace them that would support the ministry and mission of the church.In its report to the 79th General Convention, the task force said that restructuring how representatives to Executive Council are selected is an effort to refocus the energy of the provinces “on the mission of the church and relax their focus on the polity of the Episcopal Church.”The Very Rev. Craig Loya, Diocese Nebraska deputy and a member of the committee, said that if representatives are elected at General Convention, “it’s unlikely that anyone from Nebraska would ever be elected. My issue is not who is elected from Province VI but that someone from our neighborhood is elected.”Several committee members also shared their thoughts about whether the provincial system is even effective anymore. “Is the current provincial system viable?” asked North Carolina Deputy Joseph Farrell. “If we don’t agree on the concept, I don’t see how we can move forward.”Earlier in the day, the Governance and Structure Committee held a joint hearing with the Congregational and Diocesan Vitality Committee, which is considering additional resolutions submitted by the Task Force to Study Provinces. The joint hearing was scheduled to allow members of both committees to hear comments on overlapping issues.During a general discussion, members of both committees grappled with a series of proposed resolutions relating to provinces, including their purpose, representation and funding.The Governance and Structure Committee made no immediate decision on whether to approve those resolutions before it, including Resolution A075. Subcommittees were formed to review the resolutions in more detail and report back to the entire committee on its recommendations.Other proposals included Resolution A076, which would remove representatives from each province from the process of selecting a location for General Conventions because “approving the site of General Convention does not seem to relate to the mission of the church.”Resolution A072 asks dioceses over the 2019-21 triennium to “review, consider and align with whichever province best serves their identify and needs.”In its report, the task force concluded that key advantages to the province system are they foster collaboration throughout the church, they facilitate the preparation of deputies for the General Convention and they enable small ministries to find individuals and resources to carry out their mission. “To remove this structure would jeopardize these advantages,” the task force reported.The task force said that “the pattern of having some type of structure connecting the diocesan level with the church is important. Rather than invent something new, the recommendation is to look at what already exists and maximize what is working, as well as shifting what may not be working in each of the provinces.”It also suggested a shift in emphasis from provinces helping to maintain the structure of the church. “The energy in the system needs to support the mission of the church, not be used in maintaining the structure,” the task force said. “The task force sought to focus the work of the provinces on supporting the mission of the church rather than on maintain parts of the system focused only on the organization of the system itself.”This shift in emphasis led to the proposed resolution to amend how provincial representatives are elected to Executive Council.— Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

In the 9th century, the Graafjansdijk (dike) protected parts of France and Belgium against the storm tides from the North Sea and the Western part of the river Schelde. Currently only a short strip of this dike remains in the rural surroundings of the seaside village of Knokke, near the border with Holland.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeAcross the road from the Graafjansdijk is the narrow plot, enclosed by an adjacent moat on the north side. The terrain overlooks an open meadow. This geographical context has a major impact on how the design of the villa was perceived.Save this picture!Ground Floor Planthe ground level of the villa fully occupies the narrow terrain, apart from a small inner garden on the north side. It is completely wrapped in barnwood alongside the road, hiding the garage and creating a private atmosphere for the bedrooms. This materialization produces a solid plinth contrasting with the transparent volume on upper floor. This subordinate upper volume, containing the living room and kitchen, is made completely out of glass and is a lot smaller than the closed volume underneath. The barnwood walls extends 1 meter above the first level and functions as a railing for the terrace.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeThe north side opens up completely on both levels, allowing views over the meadow from the living room and kitchen on the upper level , as well as from the bedrooms downstairs. The crops growing on the north side still allow for some privacy in the bedrooms.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeThe same architectural materials from the exterior are applied throughout the interior. The intimate bedrooms combine a cosy black Tadelakt floor and walls with bespoke barnwood furniture. The same flooring continues on the upper level, combined with a bare metal kitchen counter. The free standing barnwood kitchen closets frame the view over the dike, rather than overexposing it. Past the counter lies the terrace, where the risen barnwood plinth creates privacy.Save this picture!© Tim Van de VeldeProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding for 21 Houses / Roman y CanivellSelected ProjectsThao Ho Home Furnishings / MW archstudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” Graafjansdijk House / Govaert & Vanhoutte ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGraafjansdijk House / Govaert & Vanhoutte Architects Save this picture!© Tim Van de Velde+ 33 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/775123/graafjansdijk-house-govaert-and-vanhoutte-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Knokke-Heist, Belgium ArchDaily Projects Belgiumcenter_img Graafjansdijk House / Govaert & Vanhoutte Architects Photographs 2015 Houses CopyAbout this officeGovaert & Vanhoutte ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKnokke-HeistBelgiumPublished on October 13, 2015Cite: “Graafjansdijk House / Govaert & Vanhoutte Architects” 13 Oct 2015.

Charity chairman’s cycling challenge

All four are in their mid-sixties and while Richard is riding solely for HFT the other three will also be supporting their own chosen charities.The cyclists hope to complete their challenge within three weeks, from 17th May to 7th June, riding on average 50 – 60 miles a day to cover the 1,050 mile journey.“The idea originally emerged as a joint attempt to deny our advancing years”, said Richard. “For me it is a unique way to mark my first year of chairmanship of HFT by raising funds towards its work in supporting people with learning disabilities.”“There have been days when I have thought it ludicrous to venture so far when I have seldom ridden my bike more than a half a mile into Kingston, but I am really driven by the desire to raise funds for HFT’s wonderful work for so many people with learning disabilities. Training is proceeding apace and on average I am now cycling 10 miles four times a week. We will be building up to longer rides at weekends and hope to complete at least two 50 mile rides on successive days before the end of April.”He has been given generous support by Halfords, the UK’s leading cycle and leisure solutions retailer, who have donated one of their top-of-the-range touring bikes to him after hearing about HFT and the “End to End” project.Richard, who is now retired, became chairman of HFT in October 2007, He lives in Kingston with his wife Judy, and they have two grown up children and two grandchildren.His association with HFT goes back nearly 43 years when his sister, Lucinda, became one of the first girls to be supported by the charity in 1964 as a resident of its first home at Frocester in Gloucestershire.Inspired by the level of care and support provided by HFT for Lucinda, Richard became a Trustee of the charity and has worked tirelessly to support its work for people with learning disabilities.Today HFT provides services for over 1,000 people in supported living, registered care homes, advocacy, supported employment and day services throughout the country. The charity also runs a Family Carer Support Service which provides support each year for 4,000 family carers of adults with learning disabilities.Donations can be made to support Richard’s HFT “From End to End” challenge via the Just giving website onwww.justgiving.com/richardbarber1ENDS About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Lack of donor engagement affecting donation levels

first_img Melanie May | 15 March 2016 | News Lack of donor engagement affecting donation levels AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Four out of five donors are not engaged with the charities they support, according to research from Amaze One, Harvest and Boy on a Beach.The study surveyed 1,000 UK-based respondents who had supported at least one of the UK’s top 50 charities (as ranked by CBI) in the last 12 months via at least two methods. The research specifically examined the levels of engagement and supporter behaviour within the third sector.However, the research also indicates an opportunity for charities that do engage their donors. The findings suggest that those who do engage with the charities they support, on average, donate 50 percent more compared to those that did not feel engaged with charities. This ‘engaged’ group was also 10 percent more likely to increase their year-on-year spend with their chosen charity, as opposed to just three percent for neutral supporters.Engagement was defined as any activity that causes a supporter to invest in a charity – cognitively, emotionally, and behaviourally – so that their lifetime value increases.Four out of five donors are unengaged with the charities they supportSteven Dodds, founder and planning partner at Harvest, said:“We have found there to be a severe disconnect between support and engagement, so charities need to be asking themselves tough questions on how they want to be looked at through the eyes of their donors. Mix this with the fact that a large percent of donations come from a small proportion of individuals, then you have the recipe for a complicated marketing landscape.”  128 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: donor Research / statistics  129 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 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.

Packer Capacity to Keep Up With Expanding Beef Herd

first_img SHARE By NAFB News Service – Sep 29, 2017 Packer Capacity to Keep Up With Expanding Beef Herd SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Packer Capacity to Keep Up With Expanding Beef Herd Previous articleNew Product Offers Season-long Protection from Soybean Cyst NematodeNext articleTom says Tax Plan is Good for America and Agriculture NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter A new report says the U.S. beef herd will keep expanding through the end of this decade, but there shouldn’t be any need for increased beef packer capacity. The report from CoBank says the herd will increase 3-5 percent from 2018-2019. Improving pasture conditions and continued profitability in the beef sector have been fueling herd expansion in recent years. Trevor Amen, animal protein economist at CoBank, said, over the last three years, the expansion has been the most aggressive on record. He says, “Recent slaughter numbers and the cattle on feed mix indicate the expansion rate may be slowing, but barring any significant export interruptions or weather events, the expansion will continue through the end of the decade.”The increasing cattle numbers are bringing more market-ready cattle through the supply chain, but expectations are that slaughter capacity should remain sufficient. Amen says plants will be adding extra working hours to get through the increasing supply through 2019. The biggest potential concerns as the industry drifts closer to capacity are labor availability and unforeseen plant shutdowns for maintenance.Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more
