Howard Lake | 29 August 2005 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. UrbanLeaf can live with the word “chugger” “It would be great if the job face-to-face fundraisers do was seen as what it is; positive, effective and worthwhile. And it would be great if the fundraisers themselves were seen as dedicated, well-trained and compassionate people, rather than a nuisance out for their own financial gain. “But I don’t think we should take ourselves too seriously and if thats what people call us, that’s what they call us. Face-to-face fundraisers come in for all sorts of abuse from all sorts of people every day, they always have and always rise above it. Being called a chugger is frustrating but no more than that really.”Clive argues that there has been a steady improvement in professionlism as the industry has matured and also as it has become more regulated. UrbanLeaf, whose clients include Scope, World Vision and UNICEF, says that it achieves very few public complaints, “often zero for an entire campaign.” It attributes this to the quality of the fundraisers it recruits.Clive concludes: “so the whole “chugger” thing is probably something we’re stuck with – but hopefully it’s not a term used by the people who actually stop and see what face-to-face is really about.” Tagged with: Individual giving AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 34 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “Chugger”, the pejorative term for a face-to-face street fundraiser, is now in the Oxford Dictionary of English, but street fundraising company UrbanLeaf is relaxed about the term.Clive Hanks of UrbanLeaf admits that the face-to-face fundraising industry does not like the word “chugger”. It is of course disrespectful and based on popular misperceptions of the medium, how it operates and what it achieves. But the word is here to stay, and there’s little that the industry can do about it at this stage. Clive thinks fundraisers will just have to live with it and demonstrate through their professionalism how unwarranted it is. Advertisement

The 8am operation was designed to ensure the newspaper did not appear. The newspaper‚s journalists held a press conference later the same day to protest against the decision that they say is completely illegal, since Set KZ has obtained all the necessary legal documents to be registered.————————————————————6 May 2005 Appeal to president after closure of major opposition newspaperReporters Without Borders has protested in a letter to the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev against the Kazakh authorities’ decision to close opposition weekly Respublika and its sister papers Respublika Delovoe Obozrenie and Respublika Analitichesky Ezhenedelnik. “This order to close a major opposition newspaper, through a highly dubious court ruling, constitutes a serious attack on pluralism of information in Kazakhstan,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said in the 6 May letter. “Reporters Without Borders is concerned about this escalating deterioration in press freedom. A climate of repression towards the opposition should not be allowed to take hold in the country, following the overthrow of the regime of President Askar Akayev in neighbouring Kyrgyzstan, for fear of seriously destabilising the entire republic of Kazakhstan.””We call on (President Nazarbayev) to immediately put an end to these unacceptable pressures and this hounding by the courts of a major opposition weekly. The legal system cannot be used as a tool in hands of the executive to silence dissident voices. This is not worthy of a democratic country.”The appeal court on 4 May upheld the decision of the Almaty regional court on 25 March 2005, ordering the liquidation of the company Bastau, owner of Respublika., a decision already protested by Reporters Without Borders. The opposition weekly and Bastau now have ten days to lodge an appeal against the decision before the Supreme Court.They were taken to court for having picked up in an article carried by Respublika Delovoe Obozrenie on 20 January 2005 an interview with Vladimir Jirinovsky, leader of the Russian nationalist party Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), in which he criticised Kazakhstan’s policies towards its Russian neighbour. An editorial in Respublika agreed with Jirinovsky’s remarks, which led to the authorities charging the paper with “violating the integrity of the Republic of Kazakhstan.” The Ministry of Information, Culture and Sport sent a notice to the paper on 5 May ordering its immediate closure based on the ruling of the appeal court without further explanation. In fact, Respublika Analitichesky Ezhenedelnik, sister paper of the opposition weekly, changed proprietor in February and no longer belongs to Bastau. The edict closing the newspaper is therefore completely illegal.The ruling was sent to all publishing houses in Almaty as well as to all distribution companies in central Kazakhstan. The weekly’s editor, Irina Petrushova, who has been living in exile in Russia since 2002 after receiving death threats, has decided to cancel the paper’s next edition. It was devoted to the assassination attempt against opposition leader Jarmahan Tuyakbay, in Shymkent in the south of the country.Respublika was forced to halt publication in similar circumstances in May 2002, when following a complaint from the Culture ministry, the firm PR-Konsalting, the paper’s previous owner, had been liquidated.

Picture courtesy LASDSome details have emerged about Sunday’s fatal drive-by shooting in Altadena that left a 45-year-old man dead — but the suspect remains unknown and the victim’s name has not yet been released.Homicide investigators from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department continued to work the case on Tuesday, and asked that anyone with information call them at (323) 890-5500.According to the Sheriff’s Department’s Information Bureau, the incident occurred around 1 p.m. in the 2400 block of Canyada Avenue, with Altadena deputies responding following a report of shots fired.A department news release said the unknown suspect fired multiple rounds at the victim before driving away. No motive was known.When deputies arrived, they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the upper torso near Canyada Avenue and Figueroa Drive.The victim, identified by the Sheriff’s Department only as a 45-year-old black man, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, the department said.The county coroner’s office told Pasadena Now on Tuesday that it was not releasing the ID of the victim, pending notification of his next of kin. The coroner identified the victim as an African American male in his 40s.According to the Sheriff’s Department, investigators had identified a residence of interest, but that location was cleared by the Special Enforcement Bureau.No suspects were taken into custody, and there was no additional information immediately available, a Sheriff’s Department public information officer told Pasadena Now on Tuesday.There still was some unclarity about how Sunday’s events played out, however.At the time, KCBS’s Cristy Fajardo reported that detectives said the victim was shot while driving and continued for about a block and a half before stopping at a home, where he exited the vehicle and collapsed.The sheriff’s department temporarily closed the eastbound and westbound lanes of Figueroa from Lincoln to Casitas Avenues for an investigation.Anyone who might prefer to provide information on the shooting anonymously is asked by the Sheriff’s Department to call the “Crime Stoppers” hotline at (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use a smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP on Google Play or the Apple App Store, or use the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

Texas DPS/TwitterBy Morgan Winsor, ABC News(WACO, Texas) — A Texas state trooper and married father of children has died five days after being shot in an ambush last week.Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Chad Walker was ambushed on Friday evening while responding to what he apparently thought was a disabled vehicle parked on the side of a rural road just outside of Mexia, a small town about 40 miles northeast of Waco. Walker, who was alone, pulled up behind the vehicle and was shot in the head and abdomen before he could get out of his patrol car, according to a statement from Todd Snyder, regional director of the Texas Department of Public Safety.“Our DPS family is absolutely heartbroken at the loss of one of our brothers in uniform who was killed in the line of duty,” DPS Director Steven McCraw said in a statement announcing Walker’s death. “Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Chad Walker was committed to protecting the people of Texas. His sacrifice will never be forgotten, and we ask that you keep his family, friends and colleagues in your prayers during the difficult days ahead.”Law enforcement officials had said on Tuesday that Walker “no longer display[ed] signs of valuable brain activity.”“After extensive life-saving efforts conducted by the Baylor Scott and White medical professionals, it has been determined that Trooper Chad Walker no longer displays signs of viable brain activity and he remains on life-support until he can share the gift of life as an organ donor,” the Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement Monday. “This final sacrifice embodies Trooper Walker’s actions throughout his life and service as a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper. The Walker family is grateful for the continued support and prayers as they remain at Chad’s side.”Snyder alleged the suspected gunman, identified as 36-year-old Dearthur Pinson of Palestine, Texas, saw the patrol car and “immediately emerged from the driver’s seat of the disabled vehicle armed with a handgun and fired multiple rounds at Trooper Walker through the patrol unit’s windshield.” Pinson then allegedly walked back to his vehicle, retrieved a backpack and fled the scene on foot, Snyder said.Walker, who had been a member of the Texas Department of Public Safety since 2015, was transported to a Waco hospital in critical condition. Counselors and a Texas Rangers chaplain have been with Walker’s wife and their 15-year-old son, 7-year-old twin daughters and 2-month-old baby girl, according to Snyder.Since the shooting, more than $200,000 has been donated to Walker’s family via an online crowdfunding campaign to assist with the family’s medical expenses.On Saturday night, Pinson was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in a house in Mexia, where he had barricaded himself during a standoff with authorities, according to a statement from the Texas Department of Public Safety.The Texas Rangers are leading the investigation into the incident.According to criminal records, Pinson had a history of run-ins with the law. In November 2007, he was sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison for armed robbery in Texas’ Houston County.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

The Engineering Employers’ Federation has called on the Government to set future rises in the National Minimum Wage according to a pre-determined formula. Ministers should base the formula on a retrospective analysis of basic pay rates across the economy, not on movement in average earnings, the EEF said.Stakeholder studyJust less than half of employers do not understand stakeholder pensions, even though there are only six months to go before they are introduced, research has revealed. Pensions administration specialist the FPS claims 49 per cent of companies it surveyed do not know if the pensions will be in place by April 2001 and 42 per cent did not know if they will contribute to the pensions.Equality workshopsLondon Underground, with partners RMT and Aslef, has won government funding for a programme of workshops on equality for women and people from ethnic minorities.

Rodriguez of Naval Facilities Expeditionary Logistics Center, Port Hueneme, Calif. in the senior enlisted category; Lt. Megan M. Donnelly, USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) of Carrier Strike Group 9 in the junior officer category; and Cmdr. Regina G. Marengo of 7th Naval Construction Regiment, Newport, R.I. in the senior officer category.The Captain Joy Bright Hancock Leadership Awards are presented to a senior and junior officer, and the Master Chief Anna Der-Vartanian Leadership Awards are presented to a senior and junior enlisted service member.“This year’s nominees are mature leaders who have shown exceptional leadership and have persevered to overcome challenges while serving,” said Cmdr. Elisabeth Gracia, senior awards board advisor. “This was the most competitive group we’ve ever seen, and each community should be proud of these leaders. They truly embody honor, courage and commitment on every level.”Nominations addressed the nominee’s professional accomplishments, leadership style, and community involvement. Over 120 nomination packages were submitted in response to the award solicitation message sent out last November and spanned every naval community. The awards were co-presented by the Sea Service Leadership Association and the Military Officers Association of America.The Captain Joy Bright Hancock and Master Chief Anna Der-Vartanian Leadership Awards honor the visionary leadership of service members whose ideals and dedication foster a positive working environment for reinforcing and furthering the integration of women into the Navy. Established in 1987, these leadership awards have been presented annually, recognizing the inspirational leadership of Navy officers and enlisted members on active or reserve duty. In 2012, the Navy added the junior enlisted award category. “All four women have served across the globe, impacting and shaping our Navy,” said Gracia. “From training recruits, to qualifying as an Officer of the Deck underway as an aviator, to serving in elite special programs within the Seabee community, to balancing the demands of a civilian business owner with deploying as a Reservist in support of the Global War on Terrorism, each of the recipients have displayed tremendous leadership capabilities in the face of challenges. Each of these women has worked hard and deserves of the honor that comes with receiving a Captain Joy Bright Hancock or Master Chief Anna Der-Vartanian Leadership Award.”The two award namesakes were true Navy trailblazers, both reaching new heights within their naval careers and laying the foundation for other women to follow in their footsteps today.This year, the enlisted awards were renamed in honor of Master Chief Anna Der-Vartanian. Der-Vartanian joined the Navy in December 1943, and rose through the ranks quickly, promoting to Chief Yeoman three years later in 1946. Der-Vartanian served in various leadership positions all over the fleet, from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to Paris, France. In 1959, while serving as assistant to the Global Strategy Officer at the Naval War College in Newport, R.I., Der-Vartanian received her promotion to master chief petty Officer. With that promotion, she made history as the first woman in the Armed Services to be promoted to the rank of E-9. Der-Vartanian retired from the Navy July 1963 with 21 years of naval service. Although Der-Vartanian was engaged on three separate occasions, she never married, nor had children, as that was a disqualifier of service prior to 1973.Capt. Joy Bright-Hancock joined the Navy during World War I, enlisting as a yeoman. After the war ended in 1918 and having been widowed twice, she left the Navy and went on to attend a Foreign Service School and obtained a private pilot’s license. In October 1942, Bright-Hancock was commissioned as a lieutenant. By the end of World War II, she rose to the rank of commander. In February 1946, Bright-Hancock became the WAVES’ Director and promoted to the rank of captain the following July. Bright-Hancock was instrumental in guiding the WAVES through a difficult time period and ensured that Navy women achieved the same standing as their active duty male counterparts. She retired in June 1953.This year marks the 25th Silver Anniversary of the Sea Service Leadership Association’s Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium, held in March and coinciding with Women’s History Month. The theme, “United in Service: Our Global Impact,” embodies the essence of this year’s award recipients.Commands are strongly encouraged to increase their knowledge and awareness of the contributions of women to the Navy and nation by celebrating Women’s History Month through programs, exhibits, publications, and participation in military and community events.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 28, 2012; Image: navy
