#SecretSantaSacrifice raises funds for Age UK

first_img Tagged with: christmas social media  49 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A social media campaign is helping Age UK this Christmas by asking people to donate the money they would have spent on a Secret Santa gift to the charity instead.Following a successful launch last Christmas by agency We Are Social, #SecretSantaSacrifice is back for a second year and invites people to visit secretsantasacrifice.co.uk and select a ‘gift’ from a range of virtual Secret Santa favourites, such as novelty pants, a giant pencil or silly glasses.The site then asks people to donate the amount they would have spent on purchasing their Secret Santa gift by entering their chosen donation amount and completing the transaction through JustGiving. Participants are then invited to share their gift with the person who would have received the Secret Santa present via Twitter, Facebook or email.Laurie Boult, head of fundraising at Age UK, said:“The festive season can be particularly difficult for lonely older people. A £5 donation could help us answer a call from an older person who has nowhere to turn, which is a lot more meaningful than something bought over the counter for the same price.  We really do appreciate the support of We Are Social and all who sacrifice their Secret Santa gifts for Age UK this Christmas.”According to Age UK, half a million older people spend Christmas alone. The money raised from the campaign will go towards providing support, companionship, and advice to older people and their families.

So far consumers have donated to 13,000 through the platform and it is now aiming to reach more than 25m loyalty members by Q1 2020.According to For Good Causes, over three quarters of the UK population (77%) are signed up to at least one loyalty provider and while the majority of loyalty members (91%​) state they actively collect and redeem the points and rewards they earn, it has found that there are more than £7 billion-worth currently unused.Vodafone is one of the brands currently on the platform. Thousands of its ​consumers have donated rewards this year with points being converted to an average charity donation of £6.49. In August alone Vodafone consumers donated their points to over 850 different charities including national charities like Cancer Research UK, Guide Dogs, Alzheimers Research UK, NSPCC and Help for Heroes as well as a number of local hospices, regional animal sanctuaries and children’s playgroups around the country.Crispin Rogers, CEO, For Good Causes, said:“Unlocking the £7bn of loyalty value and recycling it, to do good, is the “hero” of our story, because it will empower more people, more often to make a difference. And it creates a brand new income stream for UK charities.”“Empowering consumers to support causes they love – ones that align with their personal values and beliefs – can create strong emotional engagement and brand advocacy. Whether they choose to support medical research, animal rescue or they’re keen to donate to a local cause or to a charity addressing one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we want to enable that choice.” Melanie May | 3 October 2019 | News Advertisementlast_img read more

More Than 800 Hoosiers Sign Up for INFB Health Plans

first_img SHARE Previous articleBrazil Harvest Delays Mean More Opportunity for US ExportsNext articleThe Hoosier Ag Today Podcast for February 15th, 2021 Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter More Than 800 Hoosiers Sign Up for INFB Health Plans Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News More Than 800 Hoosiers Sign Up for INFB Health Plans By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 14, 2021 SHARE After all the hard work at the Statehouse to change the law in Indiana last year, Indiana Farm Bureau’s Health Plan offerings are off and running in the new year.“We were really impressed so far with our numbers here. We have bound 860 health plans for a January one effective date so we’re really happy with that,” says INFB Health Plans Manager Patrick Williams. “Even more happy is that we are approving applications at 79.74 percent. Again, that’s a really encouraging number and we’re anticipating, once we have the law of large numbers throughout the year, we’re going to be between 80 and 85 percent.”Williams adds that there is a plan for just about everyone.“We have 4 different traditional health plans for those that are under the age of 65. We also have a standalone dental/vision plan, and then four Medicare supplement insurance plans. Now it is important to note that these plans are not considered insurance. They may act, talk, and even look like insurance, but they’re not. Primarily because we medically underwrite and can decline.”Williams says they average 30%-50% less cost on individual plans and 50%-70% on family plans when you compare them to a non-subsidized Affordable Care Act plans.And farmers aren’t the only ones that can take advantage of these plans.“As long as you are a member of Farm Bureau for 30 days, you are eligible for this member benefit. Which, again, as a member you are entitled to all our insurance products and various benefits that come with being a member. But, yes, you do not have to be in farming.”Williams says their goal is to be around 2,000 plan holders by the end of the year. You can learn more at infbhealthplans.com.last_img read more

The FHFA said that house prices rose 6.9 percent from the first quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018.”Home prices continue to rise across the U.S. but there are signs of tapering,” said Dr. William Doerner, Senior Economist at FHFA. “Since housing markets began to rebound in 2012, house prices appreciation has been positive because demand has outpaced supply.

Amid wastewater overflow threat, Florida officials urge residents to heed evacuation orders

first_imgPhilAugustavo/iStockBY: JULIA JACOBO, ABC NEWS(TAMPA, Fla.) — Florida officials are urging residents in the surrounding areas of a wastewater storage pond to heed evacuation orders ahead of a potential overflow of polluted water.On Friday, the Manatee County Public Safety Department warned of an “imminent threat” of an uncontrolled release of wastewater from the former Piney Point phosphate processing plant in Palmetto after a breach was detected in one of the walls of the southern reservoir, which holds about 800 million gallons of water containing phosphorus and nitrogen.An estimated 390 million gallons of water remained in the pond as of Saturday morning, according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.Residents within a 1-mile radius of the plant were ordered to evacuate, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency Saturday in Manatee County as well as neighboring Hillsborough and Pinellas counties over the threat.Officials are trying to prevent “a real catastrophic flood situation” by ensuring the quality of the stack system as quickly as possible, DeSantis told reporters during a press conference Sunday.Controlled discharges from the reservoir of about 30 million gallons per day began on Tuesday, DeSantis said. Florida’s National Guard is in the process of dropping off pumps to redirect the water into surrounding waterways.“According to onsite engineers, a controlled release was necessary in order to prevent a catastrophic failure,” DeSantis said.The water being discharged is mostly seawater from the Port Manatee dredge project, process water and storm water, officials said. The water meets “water quality standards for marine waters with the exception of pH, total phosphorus, total nitrogen and total ammonia nitrogen,” according to the Florida DEP. The water is slightly acidic but not to a concerning or toxic level, officials said.The concerns for the quality of the water being discharged are currently “less than the risk of everyone’s health and safety” due to the potential for flooding, DeSantis said Sunday. More than 300 homes have been evacuated, he added.It could take between 10 to 12 days for the situation to stabilize, Manatee County Administrator Scott Hopes said Saturday.After the threat is mitigated, the wall will not be repaired, and all of the holding ponds on the property will be drained of water and likely filled, Hopes said during the press conference on Sunday. The issue has been “ongoing for decades,” he added.“This could have been resolved over two decades ago,” Hopes said.DeSantis vowed to hold HRK Holdings, the owners of the property, accountable for the failure.“It’s not acceptable,” DeSantis said.Jeff Barath, manager for HRK Holdings at Piney Point, held back tears while briefing Manatee County commissioners on the incident Thursday, the Tampa Bay Times reported.“This is my community, too,” Barath said. “And we are doing everything possible to prevent a true catastrophe, which would be the failure of that stack system.”ABC News could not immediately reach a representative for HRK Holdings for comment.ABC News’ Marlene Lenthang contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Chinese bank seeks foreclosure of RFR and Vanke’s Midtown condo project

With 27 of the 94 residential condo units sold, it calculated the outstanding principal at $248 million and unpaid interest at $22 million.ADVERTISEMENTRepresentatives for Aby Rosen’s RFR did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read moreVanke files $680K suit in condo dispute with RFR Aby Rosen accuses Chinese partner of “power grab” after condo loan default Solil Management sues to end RFR’s Gramercy Park Hotel lease Aby RosenReal Estate LawsuitsRFR Holding Message* Full Name* The financing went into default at maturity last May, leading to a public falling-out between RFR and Vanke in the fall. Rosen’s firm characterized Vanke’s acquisition of an interest in the loan as an improper “power grab,” while the Chinese developer accused RFR of sabotaging the project to get an “exorbitant buyout” for its 7 percent stake.“Vanke is disappointed that it’s come to this, as it encouraged a workout and took proactive steps to prevent a foreclosure,” said a source familiar with the situation.RFR last week was also sued by Solil Management over the ground lease at the Gramercy Park Hotel, which has been closed to paying guests and has fallen behind on ground lease payments.Portion of organizational chart for the condo project, according to 2015 loan documents.

Tracing the Indian Ocean mantle domain through time: isotopic results from old west Indian, east Tethyan, and south Pacific seafloor

first_imgThe isotopic difference between modern Indian Ocean and Pacific or North Atlantic Ocean ridge mantle (e.g. variably lower 206Pb/204Pb for a given εNd and 208Pb/204Pb) could reflect processes that occurred within a few tens of millions of years preceding the initial breakup of Gondwana. Alternatively, the Indian Ocean isotopic signature could be a much more ancient upper-mantle feature inherited from the asthenosphere of the eastern Tethyan Ocean, which formerly occupied much of the present Indian Ocean region. Age-corrected Nd, Pb, and Sr isotopic data for 46–150 Ma seafloor lavas from sites in the western Indian Ocean and ocean-ridge-type Tethyan ophiolites (Masirah, Yarlung–Zangpo) reveal the presence of both Indian-Ocean-type compositions and essentially Pacific–North Atlantic-type signatures. In comparison, Jurassic South Pacific ridge basalts from Alexander Island, Antarctica, possess normal Pacific–North Atlantic-type isotopic ratios. Despite the very sparse sampling of old seafloor, the age-corrected εNd(t) values of the old Indian Ocean basalts cover a greater range than seen for the much more thoroughly sampled present-day spreading axes and islands within the Indian Ocean (e.g. 18 εNd units for basalts in the 60–80 Ma range vs 15 εNd units for 0–10 Ma ones). The implications of these results are that the upper mantle in the Indian Ocean region is becoming increasingly well mixed through time, and that the Indian Ocean mantle domain may not greatly pre-date the age of earliest spreading in the Indian Ocean.last_img read more

Habitat use of adult male South American fur seals and a preliminary assessment of spatial overlap with trawl fisheries in the South Atlantic

first_imgLittle is known about the movement ecology of male South American fur seals (SAFS; Arctocephalus australis). To begin to address knowledge gaps we used satellite telemetry to track four adult male SAFS at the Falkland Islands over the non-breeding period, from May to December. Our aims were to describe adult male SAFS habitat use and quantify spatial overlap between male SAFS and commercial trawl fisheries. Foraging trip duration ranged from an individual mean of 8.6 ± 6.7 days to 39.2 ± 9.7 days. Adult males typically behaved like central place foragers and foraging trips were restricted to the Patagonian Shelf and shelf slope (mean distance 251 ± 239 km). However, some males ventured as far as 900 km to the north of the Falkland Islands. Overall, male SAFS spent 64% of their time in areas of trawl fishing activity, with the majority of overlap occurring within the Argentinean Exclusive Economic Zone (56 %) and the Falkland Islands Exclusive Economic Zone (43 %). Although overlap does not necessarily equate to interaction, the extent to which SAFS and fisheries interact is currently poorly understood. The emerging picture from our study is that SAFS and fisheries overlap and potentially interact across large spatial scales and multiple fishery jurisdictions.last_img read more
