Lucas will leave National Grid at the end of the year after serving a decade as the group’s finance director. Although his pay-off is not known, Lucas received £1.3m in salary and bonus last year. Bonfield will walk into a raft of issues at National Grid as the energy giant faces growing pressure from US regulators over the expenses it paid to staff in the country.He also faces the challenge of improving investor relations after the company’s surprise £3.2bn rights issue, launched in the spring. Bonfield, who began his career as an accountant with PwC, resigned from Cadbury’s board in February, after only one year in the top post. He played a major part in trying to fight off Kraft’s £11.4bn hostile takeover earlier this year.Prior to joining the confectioner, Bonfield was financial officer at Bristol-Meyers Squibb for five years in New Jersey and previously held the top finance role at SmithKline Beecham, which merged in 2000 with Glaxo Wellcome to form GlaxoSmithKline.He was tipped earlier this year as a possible candidate to take over the top job at Marks & Spencer.National Grid chief executive Steve Holliday said: “I know that with his vast experience, he will play a pivotal role in helping us meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.” Tags: NULL Monday 4 October 2010 8:23 pmcenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Share KCS-content NatGrid hires finance boss from Cadbury last_img read more

Volunteer collectors need to properly authorised Irish judge says

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Volunteer collectors need to properly authorised Irish judge says A judge has criticised a major Irish charity for not having a proper system to authorise volunteer collectors.The public expect that collectors should be well vetted and the correct permits be in place before people were authorised to collect charitable funds, the judge said during a court case involving illegal collections.Two men admitted illegally collecting funds for Barnardos and used a letter from Barnardos acknowledging participation in a sponsored swim when asked for authorisation by the police.The judge said: “Irish people are very generous but they depend on chief executives to create a system which is foolproof and make it quite clear what the needs are.”He said the Barnardos letter appeared to be offering carte blanche permission, effectively stating: “Here’s the t-shirt, go out and collect.”The two men, who were fined €300, collected with a bucket and wearing t-shirts for the charity in the street at the Diamond, Donegal town, according to a report in the Irish Times.The Charity Regulator in Ireland last year published a new set of guidelines which included guidance on how charities should interact with volunteer fundraisers.The guidelines say that trustees should be assured that any donations sought indirectly, such as through third party agents, are solicited and received in conformity with the law, the charity’s own fundraising policies and procedures and the guidelines. In addition, trustees should ensure that the charity has a policy for any activities involving volunteers, including how they are contracted and managed.

Defending Botham Jean

first_imgThe night of Sept. 6 in Dallas an off-duty policewoman, Amber Guyger, entered the apartment of a 26-year-old Afro-Caribbean man, Botham Jean, and shot and killed him. Guyger, who is white, alleges she confused his apartment with her own — which was actually on a different floor in the building. Local protests of Jean’s killing have included a Mothers Against Police Brutality vigil on Sept. 7.The community marched on Sept. 16 against this and other instances of racist cop violence. Advancing on the stadium where the Dallas Cowboys were playing a National Football League game, a symbolic funeral procession included a hearse, caskets, a motorcade and buses organized to carry demonstrators demanding the police officer be fired and charged with murder instead of manslaughter. Other protesters were arrested for blocking the road around the stadium. There have also been protests at Dallas Police headquarters about the killing of Jorge Olguín, slain in front of his children by an apartment security guard on Sept. 3. — WW StaffI really hate capitalism and its effects on our Black lives while we be minding our business, trying to exist in this “great country” that puts on a blue uniform and shield of certification, approval and impunity to kill us at will, to lynch us at OUR door without much ado. Business as usual.Botham Jean is the man that now can tell no tale. Allegedly, he had some marijuana in his apartment where he was murdered by the uniformed lyncher. Cops found “evidence” after asking for and receiving a search warrant — for the home of the victim! But how many times do the cops mention the bullets that killed him, the gun held in the hands of his police killer?The cops are criminalizing the victim. “Weed” is “legalized” in many places in this country, yet many Black and Brown people are still disappeared with arrests for “substance” — taken from their families, sent to be abused and used in prisons. There, they are forced to labor for nothing or a token wage while being price gouged by companies that profit handsomely from this neoslaveocracy. Slavery in prisons was created postemancipation in the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — a legislative “gift” to then rich landowners that keeps on giving to capitalist profits now.For sure, the cops and the newspapers aren’t talking about the unions of strong Black men and women and others fighting oppression, such as the Black Panther Party, which changed the mental trajectory of so many people here and abroad about taking control of our neighborhoods; about being alright and at peace with our identity in spite of the systemic abuse to our psyches, bodies, physical health and safety. Black people have fought public miseducation sent out though the business media and the “public schools” — propaganda purposely designed to erase and water down our Black story, history, experience, exceptional abilities and contributions to the world.I belong to another group of people who also came together to fight — a multinational, multigenerational party with various identities and backgrounds, with an internationalist point of view, fighting for and with the workers of the world against racism, colonialism and imperialism.Workers World Party has been on the frontlines since 1959 against racist discrimination and the prison-industrial complex. WWP, which fights for workers, LGTBQ people, women, im/migrants and more, is still here and growing, in the perfect mashup of the revolutionary dust-up, fanning the embers that our souls require, that pushes fire through our bodies, to push through again, until the next rally or next movement that will ultimately bring our oppressors to their knees for the crimes against our people and class.So, yeah, some of us may need to cope in this brutal world with plants such as weed, as we are continually traumatized as Black people, day in, day out, just trying to mind our own business.But this ain’t got shit to do with weed. Capitalism kills.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist held illegally in Puntland

Photo: MOHAMED ABDIWAHAB / AFP Also known as Omar Dheere, Omar Ali Hassan was arrested for no apparent reason in Garowe, Puntland’s capital, on 6 August and is being held in a prison in the southern part of the city without being charged. A reporter for the Horseed Media news website and member of the Media Association of Puntland, he had posted comments critical of Puntland’s president and parliament on social networks shortly before his arrest. “We firmly condemn the arbitrary arrest and continuing detention of Omar Ali Hassan, who just did his job as a journalist, and we call on the authorities to free him at once as no formal charge has been brought against him,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. Puntland has acquired its own institutions since declaring its autonomy in 1998 and its 2012 constitution guarantees media freedom, but RSF has noted frequent media closures and abuses against journalists, who are subjected to intimidation by government officials with complete impunity.

A media conflict of interest: anomaly in Italy

first_img On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia Receive email alerts Follow the news on Italy Organisation On the eve of Italy’s assuming the European Union presidency in July, Reporters Without Borders has issued a report on the consequences for press freedom of the conflict of interest of Silvio Berlusconi, who is both prime minister and the owner of a news media empire. News News Reporters Without Borders today released a report that looks at the conflict of interests between the public office held by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, which includes a major say over the state-owned TV broadcaster RAI, and his private ownership of the Mondadori press and publishing group and the Mediaset group of three commercial TV stations. This concentration of high public office and a privately-owned media empire in the hands of one person is unique in Europe. Many observers are alarmed at the possibility of collusion between government and news media. What are the risks for news media pluralism? Is press freedom really in danger in Italy? The report published today, entitled “A media conflict of interest: anomaly in Italy”, contains the findings of an investigation carried out by Reporters Without Borders in Milan and Rome from 17 to 24 March, in the course of which the organisation talked to journalists, the editors of the leading daily newspapers and television executives.The concentration of power in Berlusconi’s hands appears to pose less of a risk for the print media than it does for the independence of TV broadcasting. The report examines the impact on the RAI’s autonomy in detail. In particular, it looks at the dismissal of RAI journalists after they were publicly criticised by Berlusconi, and at Berlusconi’s repeated meddling in the RAI’s management, which has shaken the public TV broadcaster. Already weakened by an unprecedented institutional and identity crisis, the RAI is starting to fall behind its Berlusconi-owned rival Mediaset.The debate is now raging in parliament, which has to decide on the government’s proposals for resolving the conflict of interest and the reform of broadcasting. But none of the proposals seems to offer a satisfactory solution to this Italian anomaly.At the end of the report, Reporters Without Borders makes four recommendations urging: – parliament to make it a priority to find an effective and appropriate solution to the prime minister’s media conflict of interest,- Silvio Berlusconi to refrain from any form of interference in the RAI’s management,- the RAI management to reinstate the dismissed journalists immediately,- the European Commission to examine the case of Italy in its green paper on the concentration of news media in a few hands. to go further Help by sharing this information News ItalyEurope – Central Asia center_img News December 2, 2020 Find out more November 19, 2020 Find out more ItalyEurope – Central Asia – Read the report – Download the report : April 23, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A media conflict of interest: anomaly in Italy November 23, 2020 Find out more RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union RSF_en last_img read more

During the hearing, the CJI expressed apprehension that political parties may use the funds secured by way of EBs for purposes other than political activities. “There are political parties who do terrorism,” the CJI said. He added, “This angle of possibility of funding of terrorism through funding needs to be examined. It is possible that funds through this mechanism are diverted by particular people for other purposes with an agenda…You can start a protest, with this funding. You can start many things.” The Solicitor General submitted that only political parties with at least 1% vote share can take EBs. Unconvinced, the CJI remarked, “We are sure that there are parties who meet this criteria and have violence as an agenda.” He added, “We don’t want to get into political arena and don’t want to comment on any political party. Suppose, there is a party which wants to finance a protest, which has the potential of violence, can’t they use bonds to fund it?” Turning to the AG, the CJI asked whether the Government exercises control on the money being used after encashing the bonds. “The bonds are valid only for 15 days. After that, it is paper,” the AG said. The AG added, “Political parties have to file income tax returns. Except the CPI(M) and another party, no other national parties filed the returns. Case came to Supreme Court. Supreme Court condemned the parties and directed them to file returns. Even the Congress party did not file. It was after Supreme Court judgment that all started filing. So now question of such misuse cannot arise. They have to file returns.”The bench comprising CJI Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramaniam has reserved orders on the application seeking stay.Notably, the Election Commission of India opposed stay of electoral bonds. The ECI said they are not opposed to electoral bonds, but want more transparency. But Electoral Bonds is one step ahead unaccounted cash system, ECI said. The issue of transparency can be considered at the final argument stage, and there should be no interim stay, the ECI’s counsel Senior Advocate Rakesh Dwivedi told the SC.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
