  • Donations rise by 40% in one year at lung charity

    first_imgDonations rise by 40% in one year at lung charity One of the most successful appeals was an April 2003 warm appeal which focused on Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The BLF has been campaigning for this service to be made widely available across the UK. Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes improve the health and confidence of people with lung illness. The April appeal tied in with the campaigning work being undertaken.It included interviews with patients currently on rehab programmes and respiratory consultants who have supported the BLF’s campaign. Almost double the amount of income was received compared to the April 2002 warm appeal.BLF attribute this increase in performance over the last year is due to “strong in-house creative ideas being produced, increasingly sophisticated targeting and a program of testing that has seen results increase dramatically.”Next year the BLF will undertake its largest ever acquisition mailing program. The team have set the target of nearly doubling the size of their warm donor base to 30,000. It will also see the charity’s largest telemarketing campaign to date to convert cash donors to committed giving with a target of 1,000 new regular givers.These activities form part of the British Lung Foundation’s plans to increase annual income from individuals by £700,000 by 2006. Donations from direct mail fundraising to the British Lung Foundation (BLF) have risen by nearly 40% in one year to over £254,000, beating last year’s income by £71,000.Return on investment for the Direct Marketing and Donor Development team has doubled from 3:1 to 6:1 on appeals and raffles to warm donors. Average response rates have risen from 8.3% to 14.15 % on appeals to warm donors. The team have also doubled cold mailing response rates and raised reciprocal mailing response rates by one third.BLF’s Direct Marketing and Donor Development Manager, Richard Yorke, said: “The success we have had over the last year is due to time spent thinking creatively about every aspect of our direct marketing programme and ensuring that we are constantly challenging ourselves to improve.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

  • Protests say: ‘Stop U.S. march to war’’

    first_imgTimes Square, N.Y., May 23.WW photo: G. Dunkel“No to fascism in Ukraine! No war with Russia!” was the theme of the International Action Center protest in New York’s Times Square on May 26, Memorial Day. The demonstrators’ determination to denounce U.S. aggression and the expansion of NATO into Ukraine contrasted with the general mood of the sunny spring holiday.Speakers at the rally demanded hands off the Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and expressed solidarity with the anti-fascist fighters there. Representatives of South American liberation struggles in Venezuela and Honduras spoke, aligning with those in Eastern Europe fighting against U.S. imperialism.Syrian community activists played a large role in the protest, drawing attention to U.S.-backed attacks on upcoming elections in their besieged country. Representatives of the struggle against U.S. intervention in the Philippines, Ecuador, Korea, Iran, Egypt, and other countries targeted by Washington also spoke, along with organizers of the fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour here in the U.S.Anti-war soldiers denounced the Pentagon on Memorial Day and called for people to remember those murdered by fascists in Ukraine.After more than an hour in Times Square, the demonstration set off for CNN headquarters, about a mile away. Signs opposing the U.S. war machine and militant slogans got a great reception from many tourists and passersby as the demonstration moved up Broadway.A second rally was held in front of the CNN offices, with speakers expressing outrage at the many media lies blaming Russia for the crisis in Ukraine, rather than exposing the truth about the long-term U.S. strategy to encircle Russia and turn it into a U.S. colony. Some speakers raised the need for money for jobs, health care and social services, not a build-up for war in Eastern Europe.Buffalo, N.Y., pro-war media lies targetedIn cahoots with the most powerful business interests, the Buffalo daily newspaper has been publishing extensive articles about Ukraine, some on the front page posing as news. These articles have clearly been designed to create sympathy for the U.S.-sponsored coup in Kiev and create opposition here to the resistance against the fascist forces.As a response to the United National Antiwar Coalition’s call for emergency actions against U.S. intervention in Ukraine, the Buffalo/Western N.Y. International Action Center held a picket line on May 19 in front of the Buffalo News to say that the News’ propaganda about Ukraine is a lead-up to a new U.S. war, no different from what this newspaper did to get people to support the U.S. wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. The Buffalo IAC demanded that the News stop the lies and print the whole truth about the U.S. role in NATO’s moves in Eastern Europe, the benefits to U.S. and Euro banks and corporations of inflicting brutal austerity on the citizens of Ukraine, and the connection to U.S. and Euro oil and gas corporation profits.Sue Davis and Ellie Dorritie contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The bank noted that Q3 2017 included a discrete litigation cost of $1 billion for “previously disclosed mortgage-related regulatory investigations.”Noninterest income was $9.5 billion, compared with $9.7 billion in Q2 2017, which reflected lower mortgage banking and other income, partially offset by “higher market-sensitive revenue.”Additionally, mortgage banking noninterest income declined to $1 billion, compared with $1.1 billion in Q2 2017. Residential mortgage loan originations were $59 billion, representing an increase from Q2 2017. The bank noted, “the production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage loan originations was 1.24 percent, consistent with the second quarter.” While mortgage servicing income was $309 million in Q3, down from $400 million in Q2, primarily due to “higher unreimbursed servicing costs.”Overall net income results are down as well, with the bank’s net income for Q3 2017 at $4.6 billion, or $0.84 per diluted common share, compared with $5.6 billion, or $1.03 per share, for Q3 2016, and $5.8 billion, or $1.07 per share, for Q2 2017.According to John Shrewsberry, Chief Financial Officer of Wells Fargo, despite the decline in net income, the bank continued to see good credit performance and its liquidity and capital remained strong.“During the quarter, first under our 2017 Capital Plan, we returned $4 billion to shareholders through common stock dividends and net share repurchases, up from $3.4 billion in the second quarter,” Shrewsberry said. “We remain committed to our target of $2 billion of expense reductions by the end of 2018 which will be reinvested in the business and an additional $2 billion by the end of 2019 intended to go to the bottom line.”Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan commented, saying that over the past year Wells Fargo has made fundamental changes to transform as part of the bank’s efforts to rebuild trust and build a better bank.“While our financial performance in the third quarter included the impact of a litigation accrual for previously disclosed, pre-crisis mortgage-related regulatory investigations, I am proud of the commitment of our 268,000 team members who put our customers first,” Sloan said.Bank of America also reported Q3 earnings on Friday. According to the results, net income increased 13 percent to $5.6 billion, and diluted earnings per share (EPS) increased 17 percent to $0.48, while year-to-date net income increased 19 percent to 15.7 billion.However, noninterest income decreased $756 million, or 7 percent, to $10.7 billion, driven primarily by lower mortgage banking income and lower sales and trading revenue, partially offset by higher asset management fees, which the bank noted is “partially offset by higher card income and service charges.”Additionally, the results found that average loans and leases grew $11.1 billion, or 8 percent, driven by mortgage and structured lending.”Our focus on responsible growth and improving the way we serve customers and clients produced another quarter of strong results,” said Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan. “Revenue across our four lines of business grew 4 percent, even with a challenging comparable quarter for trading.”Moynihan continued to explain that the bank delivered positive operating leverage year-over-year for the eleventh consecutive quarter while continuing to invest in improved capabilities.According to Paul M. Donofrio, Chief Financial Officer at BofA, year-over-year the bank grew average deposits by $45 billion, or 4 percent, and increased average loan balances in business segments by $46 billion, or 6 percent.“It’s worth noting that we grew loans while remaining within our customer and risk frameworks, as evidenced by our low loss rates,” Donofrio said. “Our balance sheet remained strong, which enabled us to repurchase nearly $3 billion in common stock and pay $1.3 billion in common stock dividends in the quarter.”To view Wells Fargo’s full Q3 2017 results, click here.To view Bank of America’s full Q3 2017 results, click here.

  • Veteran officer arrested for threatening, assaulting multiple coworkers

    first_imgamphotora/iStock(WASHINGTON) — A Washington, D.C., police officer was charged with assault on Wednesday, accused of inappropriately touching coworkers on at least three separate occasions.Metropolitan Police Department officer Robert Anderson, a 29-year veteran with the force, was arrested on five counts of simple assault for inappropriately touching and threatening colleagues, police said Wednesday.At least two of the victims were female.The department opened an internal investigation earlier this year when an on-duty officer claimed Anderson, 51, had touched her without her consent, the department said in a statement.“On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant, 51 year-old Robert A. Anderson of Hanover, MD, was arrested and charged with five counts of Simple Assault,” the statement said. “He has been employed with the Department since 1990 and is assigned to the Fifth District. His police powers had been revoked and in a duty status that does not require him to interact with the public.”Police said the incidents took place in the department’s Fourth and Fifth District stations between Jan. 14 and Feb. 5. Anderson allegedly approached the victims and touched them without their consent on three occasions, including one where he allegedly threatened a victim.The victims were all coworkers at the time, according to the department.Chief of Police Peter Newsham said Anderson’s “police powers” have been revoked.“The Metropolitan Police Department does not condone any criminal or immoral conduct by an employee,” Newsham said in the statement. “Officer Anderson’s actions are disgraceful and not a representation of the men and women of this agency.”ABC News could not reach Anderson for comment.

I know the people of St. Louis and Missouri will proudly support her when she is commissioned and officially enters the Navy fleet.”The Lockheed Martin-led industry team is currently in full-rate production of the Freedom-variant of the LCS, and has delivered four ships to the U.S. Navy to date. The future USS St. Louis is one of seven ships in various stages of construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine, with two more in long-lead production.“We are proud to build another proven warship that allows our Navy to carry out their missions around the world,” said Joe North, vice president and general manager of Littoral Ships and Systems.LCS 19 will be the seventh ship to bear the name USS St. Louis. The first St. Louis, a sloop of war, was launched in 1828. Other ships to bear the name included an ironclad gunboat commissioned in 1862, a troop transport commissioned in 1898, a protected cruiser in commission from 1906 to 1922, a light cruiser commissioned in 1939, and, most recently, a Charleston-class amphibious cargo ship in service from 1969 to 1991.
