UK retailers spent around £210m during 2009 to 2010 on protection from shoplifters but the high value items are still being stolen.A BRC spokesman said: “I think a raft of the more opportunist shoplifting offences have significantly reduced thanks to the extra security measures, and that’s left a bigger proportion of the more sophisticated, systematic higher-value offences.” Fraud and burglary are the other costly problems that plague retailers.

Shareholders query London base for HSBC

first_img Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Shareholders query London base for HSBC HSBC shareholders are becoming increasingly restless over the bank’s domicile, with the UK bank levy a particular bugbear due to the proportion of its incomes earned abroad.The bank has said that the levy will cost it $600m (£369m) this year, between the £315m and £390m forecasts for RBS and Barclays respectively, despite HSBC deriving a far greater proportion of its income from abroad.By contrast, Standard Chartered, which makes nearly all of its money overseas, said it would put aside $180m (£110m) for the cost of the levy this year.HSBC chief executive Stuart Gulliver said yesterday that the bank would prefer to stay in London and said that reports that it will imminently decide to move elsewhere were “speculative and presumptuous”. But he added: “We are, however, in light of possible regulatory changes and additional costs such as the bank levy, being increasingly asked by shareholders and investors about the likely additional cost of being headquartered in the UK.”The European Council published a report in January showing that the UK’s bank levy is the most stringent and wide-ranging in Europe, warning of “spill-over effects, distortion of competition and relocation of businesses” as a result.HSBC’s annual report shows that it made just an eighth of its pre-tax profits in the UK last year (see above), and the numbers of staff it has based in Europe has been declining for several years.Between 2008 and 2010, the bank’s European headcount fell 7.7 per cent to 75,700, whereas its Asia-Pacific staff numbers rose 2.1 per cent to 91,600.The bank is also a relatively recent arrival in London, having moved its headquarters here in 1992.It is currently conducting a review of the costs of staying in London, which it does every three years. But this time, the bank’s chairman Douglas Flint has promised to publish a summary of the report’s findings in a clear demonstration that the bank is taking shareholders’ concerns seriously.

FRSB’s Annual Complaints Return to be most detailed to date

first_imgFRSB’s Annual Complaints Return to be most detailed to date Howard Lake | 10 January 2011 | News  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Law / policy legacies Research / statistics Trading The Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) has today asked its charity members to complete their compulsory Annual Complaints Return, summarising all the fundraising complaints they have received during 2010.For the first time, the self-regulatory body’s survey will cover complaints about legacy fundraising and house-to-house clothing collections, making it the most comprehensive of its annual surveys to date.Last year the FRSB introduced questions for its members about direct mail and telephone fundraising, the areas of fundraising that attract the most complaints. These identified that the public was most concerned about the frequency of fundraising mailings and the tone of telephone calls.This year’s new questions on legacy fundraising are designed to discover if there are particular methods and channels that offend the public more than others and whether the administration of legacy pledges is an area of major concern. The new questions on house-to-house clothing collections are included partly to help establish benchmarks for the new House-to-House Collections Code of Practice which will be launched this year by the Institute of Fundraising.Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board, said: “A key aim of our Annual Complaints Return is to gauge public opinion of the various fundraising methods used. By expanding the breadth and detail of the returns we hope our members will be able to provide further critical information that will help shape best practice ./guidance in the future, ultimately ensuring that complaints are kept to an absolute minimum.”The return requests information about the type of fundraising activity conducted, volume levels and complaints received by each member charity. Complaint figures for 2009, published last year, showed that levels of complaints remained low, with an average of one complaint received for every 208,000 fundraising contacts or approaches made.For the first time, the FRSB has this year enlisted independent fundraising specialist and researcher Professor Adrian Sargeant to analyse the returns data and the trends it presents. His findings will be reported in the FRSB’s Annual Report in June 2011.Sargeant, Professor of fundraising at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Professor of fundraising and nonprofit marketing at Bristol Business School, said: “The FRSB is doing vital work in understanding the nature of complaints made about fundraising practice in this country. Only when we understand the areas where we’re weak can we begin to develop our professional practice and improve public confidence as a consequence”.All current member charities of the FRSB that joined before July 2010 are required to complete an annual complaints return. The deadline to submit them is 7 March 2011.www.frsb.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

TCU’s last win against the University of Texas came Feb. 1, 2015, head coach Raegan Pebley’s first game coached against the Longhorns.Three-point shooting was the difference maker as the Horned Frogs shot a school-record 81.8 percent from long range on 9-11 shooting, including two daggers in the final minute to seal the victory. Their previous 80 percent record came against San Diego State Jan. 9, 2008 with an 8-10 shooting performance.The biggest three-pointer on the night came from the hands of Kianna Ray as she nailed a clutch basket from beyond the arc in the final seconds of the contest to give the Horned Frogs a 77-75 lead over the Longhorns.Neither team led by more than five points in the tense fourth quarter. With 56 seconds remaining on the clock and a 73-71 lead for the Longhorns, TCU senior guard Toree Thompson nailed a three-pointer to return the lead back to the home team. Just 18 seconds later, the Longhorns jumped back on top with a layup from Ariel Atkins. Ray responded with her dagger.Atkins wasn’t finished yet as she nailed another jumper to tie the game at 77 with 17 seconds remaining. Ray drove to the basket, was fouled and nailed both free throws to seal the deal and shock the Longhorns. Her free throws capped her stellar performance which concluded with a career-high 17 points.Junior forward Jordan Moore led the Frogs in scoring Wednesday with 19 points on 8-11 shooting and added five blocks to her totals, including two in the final two minutes.The Horned Frogs will travel to Morgantown, W. Va to take on the No. 15 Mountaineers Saturday. West Virginia narrowly escaped the Horned Frogs Dec. 28 by a score of 87-82 and now TCU will look for revenge on the road.

Sophomore Isabella Aguilar ended the race in 16th place with a time of 20:17.55. Four other Frogs competed in the race and rounded out the standings. For the men’s team, sophomore Lakelin Conrad was the first Frog to cross the finish line for the second week in a row.

Two community radio reporters could be tried for “disobeying the authorities”

first_imgNews RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America A judge will decide on 11 January whether community radio reporters Elia Xiomara Hernández and Elba Yolibeth Rubio are to be tried on charges of disobeying the authorities and “taking part in demonstrations that obstruct public services.” That was the outcome of judicial proceedings in the southern town of Amapala in which their rights were not respected.Hernández and Rubio, who work for radio La Voz de Zacate Grande, were arrested on 15 December while covering a protest by a family being evicted from land it had occupied in the locality of Coyolito on the southern island of Zacate Grande.At the moment of their arrest, they produced documents showing that they are journalists. They were nonetheless held illegally for 36 hours without being told the charges and without being allowed to make any phone calls. They were hit and they were denied medical treatment. Their equipment was also confiscated. And they are currently prohibited from leaving the districts where they live.“We deplore the decision to prosecute two journalists who were just doing their job and committed no crime, and we urge the authorities to drop all the charges,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Covering a protest is not the same as participating in it. We also demand that they be compensated for the suffering resulting from this arbitrary arrest. And those responsible for the violence against them must be called to account.”All the legal procedures have been violated in this case. They were not taken before the judge, Eris Armando Hernández, until 24 hours had gone by since their arrest. This normally results in all charges being dropped. Also, the local judicial authorities cannot initiate prosecutions. That is the prosecutor-general’s prerogative.In a separate development, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights issued a ruling on 22 December requiring the Honduran government to protect journalist José Luis Galdámez, who has escaped several murder attempts and has received many death threats designed to make him abandon his work. Galdámez is the producer of “Tras la Verdad,” a programme on Radio Globo that has criticised President José Manuel Zelaya’s removal in a June 2009 coup. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Follow the news on Honduras HondurasAmericas HondurasAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace”center_img Receive email alerts Reports Help by sharing this information to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more Organisation December 27, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two community radio reporters could be tried for “disobeying the authorities” News December 28, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
