Sarah Shillito, head, the Vodafone Foundation UKUK Fundraising’s publisher, Howard Lake, was voted number 21, down from number 11 last year.The top 50 this year featured more names from the regulatory environment, presumably because the poll introduced new criteria, one of which was that those named had to have “the ability to influence fundraising law and regulation and policy”. Fifteen people from this area of fundraising were listed, up from 11 last year.The list has changed considerably over its five years of operation. Only 19 of the original 50 appear in this year’s list, and 19 names appear on this year’s list for the first time.The highest ranking new names are Sarah Shillito, head of the Vodafone Foundation UK (number 10) and John Thompson (18) who runs the Changing Business consultancy.There are still more agencies and consultancies in the list than practising fundraisers – 17 against 12. And three of those 12 fundraisers work at the NSPCC.Only three people from grantmaking bodies made the list, and the same number of researchers. Luke FitzHerbert, who was killed in a road accident in January, deservedly made it into the list for his research work.This year’s list features some of the new media agencies that are transforming fundraising. eBay’s Sharath Jeevan (37) and Everyclick founder Polly Gowers (50) both made it on to the list for the first time.The top 50 list continues to be dominated by men, with just 13 women listed.There are, as always, some names missing from the list who one might have assumed would have been included. Given the growth in online fundraising, no-one from Justgiving or Bmycharity is listed. Nor David Pitchford from IntelligentGiving.com. And where are the influential fundraising sector bloggers? In the USA they get press invitations to conferences; here they haven’t begun to make an impact on their peers it would seem.Other ‘missing’ names might include Kevin Kibble, Simon Burne, John Grain, and fundraising PR specialists such as Jenny Turner and Ian MacQuillin.The sector umbrella bodies don’t achieve much presence either with just one name from the Directory of Social Change, no-one from Charities Aid Foundation, and one former NCVO staffer.

Denver — In the last seven months, the Denver police have fired four times into moving cars, killing two youth of color and injuring three more.A demonstration of over 400 young people took to the streets of Denver on Feb. 14. They blocked the main downtown streets and intersections, stopping at the detention center, the court buildings and the Denver Police Department to shout their anger and to demand justice for the dead and the two survivors who remain in jail.Police kept their distance from the angry crowd of youth and the many supporters and families of the victims.The crisis point came after a long history of Denver police beatings and use of excessive force when, on Jan. 26, Jessie Hernandez, a 17-year-old gender-nonconforming Latina, was shot to death. This was the fourth shooting by Denver police into a moving car, an action which is illegal according to police policy.There have been multiple versions of the shooting sent out by the police department, but the charges of speeding and eluding police were dropped. The surviving occupants of the car said that Jessie was shot and only then did the car go out of control. Jessie’s family has asked for a federal investigation due to their mistrust of the Denver police and prosecutors. Jessie’s mother broke down as she spoke to the crowd about raising money to bury her child. The community distrusts the Denver Police Department’s many differing versions of the story and feels that Jessie was shot for being Latina and gender nonconforming. The mother made clear she is seeking a fair investigation and justice for the loss of her child as she sobbed the words in Spanish.In July 2014, Ryan Ronquillo, 20 years old, was shot twelve times by Denver police as he sat in his car in front of a funeral home where services for his best friend were taking place. Denver police cars sped into the lot, crashing into his car. Then the police jumped out and shot Ryan to death.In January 2015, Sharod Kindell had a clean record. He had been working to buy a new car. He was continually stopped and harassed by the police while driving the car, a total of 40 or 50 times. He sold the car, hoping to avoid further trouble but was again pulled over by the Denver police on Jan. 9. He gave them his ID. He used his rights and refused to exit the vehicle and put his hands up for the police not to shoot.The police opened the door of the car and while pulling him off the brake, the car rolled. Then the police shot him four times. He was seriously wounded but rapidly removed from the hospital ICU and sent back to jail. He now awaits trial.The shouts of the demonstrators reached Sharod in the jail and caused great excitement as he called out to thank everyone. Sharod’s supporters are seeking to raise money for his bail and also to support his two daughters and other family members.Lastly, two brothers, Joel Jurado, age 26, and Carlos Jurado, age 20, were shot and wounded as Denver police surrounded their car while they had their hands up to surrender. Carlos was released, but Joel remains in jail.All the cases have a common thread. All the victims were young people of color. All involved police shooting into cars and all appear to involve one police officer, Jeffrey Di Manna, who currently remains on the job. In all cases, the police tried to say the victims attempted to hit or run over the police despite differing statements by the victims and witnesses.No justice, no peace!The Denver Police Department has a long, documented history of beating prisoners resulting in costly settlements for excessively using force and brutality. A study in 2010 showed that the Denver police force used greater amounts of excessive force as compared with other U.S. cities.Clearly, the recent anger has reached a tipping point as the Feb. 14 protest reflects. There is a national scourge of police violence against youth of color in this country — in small towns like Ferguson and in major cities like New York, Cleveland, Los Angeles and San Francisco.When the protesters marched past the police station on Feb. 14, two people were arrested after spilling red paint on a memorial for fallen police officers. The stone was quickly washed off, but police asserted to the Denver press that the act was disrespectful of the dead. The Denver Community Defense Committee responded that no one complained of dishonoring the dead when Jessie Hernandez’s dead body, riddled with bullets, was handcuffed and dragged in the street.Speakers said, “The people of Denver have run out of cheeks to turn” by a “system of police murders with complete immunity,” and no action has been taken by city officials “to stem the blood in the streets.”This march was organized by the families of the victims, the Denver Defense Committee, Brothas Against Racist Cops, and supported by Anonymous, Occupy Denver and the Colorado Progressive Coalition, along with many other people, young and old, Latino/a and African American from Denver and statewide.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Facebook Twitter SHARE Much of this unity was in response to the increasing attacks by animal activists. Platt thinks, however, that ag has overreacted to the threat from PETA, HSUS, and others, “The amount of energy that is spent within agriculture fighting back against the activists against some of their concerns is disproportionate to the real concerns that the general public has.” He believes that projects like the Pig Adventure at Fair Oaks and the Glass Barn at the State Fair have gone a long way in reaching consumers in a positive way, “I think the general public understands what pork producers do; they understand why they do it. Once they understand that pork producers care for and respect their animals, then they are very comfortable with how things proceed.” Home News Feed A New Era at Indiana Pork Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Aug 6, 2013 A New Era at Indiana Pork Josh TraneryJosh Tranery will take over as head of Indiana Pork, and Platt feels the organization is well-positioned to meet the challenges of the future, “I think the big challenge will be making sure the needs of pork producers, the needs of consumers, and the needs of the community are all simultaneously met in a responsible manner. I think Indiana pork has a long history of meeting those challenges, and I think Josh is in a perfect spot to lead the organization into the future.” Platt will be moving on to join his wife in a publishing and consulting business. A symbolic passing of the ham took place between Platt and Tranery during the Pork Producers Ham breakfast at the Indiana State Fair. Platt was honored with a standing ovation by the pork producers and state ag leaders at that event.

It has been a time of growth and significant change for the Indiana pork industry, and Mike Platt has been a strong voice and steady hand as the head of the state’s pork organization. Platt told HAT that, over the past 7 years, he has seen Indiana agriculture groups become more unified, “Everyone coming together in a much better way, a much more strategic way. I don’t thing Indiana agriculture has ever been this united.” He cited the work of the Indiana Family of Farmers as an example of this new working relationship. He added having many of the organizations all headquartered in the same office building has also helped build a closer relationship.
By Gary Truitt – Mar 24, 2016 SHARE Jennifer TankA new program aimed at improving water quality in the nation’s heartland by using watershed-scale conservation to reduce nutrient runoff from farms was highlighted Tuesday at a White House Water Summit. The Water Summit was the backdrop for the Obama administration’s announcement of a national strategy on water management and drought resiliency. Agriculture is a big part of this strategy because, as USDA Under Secretary Robert Bonnie explains, when it comes to water, “Most of the rain the falls in the U.S. falls on farm fields and forests. So what happens on those lands impacts the quality and quantity of our nation’s water.” The new Indiana-based program is spearheaded through a collaboration between the University of Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative and Indiana University. The Indiana Watershed Initiative pairs two promising conservation practices: winter cover crops and floodplain restoration of waterways. The project will quantify how watershed-scale conservation can improve water quality in an effort to successfully meet national goals for reducing farm nutrient runoff by 40 percent. It was funded through the USDA Regional Conservation Partnership Program. Facebook Twitter The project will quantify the soil and water quality benefits due to the planting of winter cover crops and the installation of floodplain using two-stage ditches in two Indiana watersheds, located in Kosciusko and Jasper counties. The project pays farmers to implement conservation on the ground practice over four years, with the goal of achieving adoption cover crop coverage on 85 percent of cropland acres, and to install the two-stage ditch along the majority of channelized ditch. The research team is focusing on these two conservation practices because they provide a practical solution to prevent nutrient and sediment loss from crop land. “What a thrill it is to have our research highlighted at the summit, bringing our data from the nation’s heartland on how conservation can benefit both farmers and the environment,” said Jennifer Tank, Galla Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame , who leads the initiative. Indiana Conservation Program Highlighted at White House Summit. SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Conservation Program Highlighted at White House Summit. Another key component of the project is to accurately estimate the full suite of costs and benefits incurred through conservation implementation. The project team, with collaborators at Iowa State University, and additional support from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USGS, The Nature Conservancy, Walton Family Foundation, Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council, recently announced the expansion of the project to include economic valuation. With farmer cooperation, the team will quantify the economic and environmental benefits of on-farm conservation. Results from the analysis could help promote implementation of on-farm conservation practices across the 11 million corn and soybean acres in Indiana. “After working closely with farmers, we have come to realize that real buy-in for this type of conservation will only come if it makes dollars and sense for agriculture as well,” Tank said. “Our goal is to determine if environmental benefits can also translate positively for farmers.” Previous articleGovernor Pence Signs Road Funding Bill Into LawNext article3 Hoosiers Part of Purdue Soy Innovation Winning Team Gary Truitt Indiana Conservation Program Highlighted at White House Summit.

Partnership for Success! helps selected Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) students realize their full academic and personal potential in a setting that fosters community, collaboration, and confidence. Their summer enrichment program is designed to help students realize their academic goals and learn the skills needed for a brighter future. This dynamic program spans nine consecutive summers. Selected by their school principals, 430 Pasadena public school students immerse themselves in a well-balanced curriculum including math, science, technology, and language arts. Students also receive academic tutoring and college counseling. Students begin in 5th grade and continue the program through 12th grade.A $20,000 Education Program Grant from PCF in 2016 enabled Partnership for Success! to create a new program: a pre-college boot camp of sorts. “With the support of the Pasadena Community Foundation, Partnership for Success! launched our pre-college bridge program,” said PFS! Executive Director, Gillian Bush. (The first class of the new program are pictured above.) “Graduates of the PFS! were invited back to spend their post senior year summer as students in the program, taking classes on college writing, human development, and the nuts and bolts of time management and study skills needed to navigate the new environment of freshman year. As most of our graduates are first-generation college students, this extra support and preparation is extremely valuable in making their transition a smooth and successful one.”The grant also helped strengthen the existing free Saturday tutoring sessions for 8th through 12th graders. The tutoring program is optional and voluntary, designed for students who are seeking to improve their grades or are seeking extra guidance to help them achieve their true potential in the classroom.For more on PCF’s Education Grant Program click here.

FHFA gave as its reasons for extending the comment period the importance of the issues being addressed, the high interest level in the proposal, and requests from stakeholders for more time to evaluate the proposal.FHFA Director Mel Watt encouraged the federal banks to stay focused on the FHFA’s mission in a speech at the FHLB Director’s Conference in May. In that speech, Watt discussed the “different” risk of lending to insurance companies and stated that captive insurers deserve some “additional attention.””Captive insurance borrowing and membership in the FHLBank System raises a number of possible issues related to safety and soundness and access to the System,” Watt said in his speech.Watt said he could not elaborate on the issues surrounding the membership of captive insurers at the time of the speech, but one of the proposed changes would eliminate captive insurers for consideration for FHLB membership by changing the definition of “insurance company” to include only those companies that have insurance underwriting for nonaffiliated parties as their primary business. It would also keep out those entities not eligible for membership from using a captive insurer to gain access to advances from one of the Federal Home Loan Banks.Another proposed revision requires members to hold one percent of their assets in home mortgage loans (HML) on an ongoing basis, whereas under current guidelines members are required to demonstrate this only at the time of their application and not at any time afterward. Similarly, the proposed rule revisions would require members to adhere to the 10 percent residential mortgage loan (RML) requirement on an ongoing basis instead of just at the time of application.To comment on the proposal, visit www.fhfa.gov.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — A double murder suspect who is on the run after a string of violent crimes in Tennessee may have been spotted overnight, authorities said.As the search intensifies for Kirby Gene Wallace in a rural area of Tennessee north of Nashville, a homeowner called 911 early Wednesday to report that he had heard his dogs barking and saw a man trying to get into his porch, authorities said Wednesday.The man, who appeared to be carrying a gun, then fled into the woods, authorities said.Investigators are trying to confirm if Wallace, 53, was the man trying to enter the porch, authorities said.Another 911 call also came in overnight reporting possible suspicious activity, and since then authorities have deployed more resources and established a second search perimeter, they said.Anyone with relatives or friends in the area is asked to reach out to them and make sure they are OK, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Nilan said Wednesday.Wallace is suspected of killing a 63-year-old woman after she and her husband came home from church on Sept. 23, Stewart County Sheriff Frankie Gray said, according to The Tennessean newspaper. The couple was bound and their house was set on fire, Gray said, according to the newspaper. The husband survived.Wallace is also suspected of shooting and killing a man and stealing his truck on Monday in Montgomery County, The Tennessean reported.Days earlier, a woman in her 80s was returning home from church when Wallace allegedly stopped her at her car and forced her into her home at knife-point, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said.Inside the home Wallace allegedly showed the woman a loaded rifle, threatened her and took apart her phone to keep her from calling for help, the sheriff’s office said. Wallace allegedly tied her to her bed before fleeing in her car, officials said.As the manhunt continues, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office urged residents to stay inside, keep their doors and windows locked and report any suspicious activity.Authorities on Tuesday said they can’t rule out if Wallace is getting outside help and vowed to find him “one way or another.”A $7,500 reward is available for information leading to his capture, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.Wallace is described as having gray hair, hazel eyes and possible facial hair. He stands at 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 157 pounds, authorities said.Wallace is wanted on charges including first-degree murder, felony murder, attempted murder, aggravated arson and especially aggravated kidnapping, authorities said.Anyone with information about his location is asked to call 911.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
