More donors are giving donations of $1,000 or more online, according to a survey of American non-profits by Kintera Inc, the online fundraising technology company.Kintera examined the results of 3,151 large and small fundraising campaigns that received donations during 2003. Some lasted a few weeks, others six months.Classifying a major gift as any donation over $1,000, Kintera reports that such gifts amounted to 8.3% of all donations received online. Of these major gifts, 53.6% were exactly $1,000, raising 34.2% of all large online gifts. A further 3.6% were $5,000 or higher, raising 15.4% of all large online gifts. Of the 3,151 campaigns, 460 (14.6% of the total) received at least one gift of $1,000 or more online.

first_imgWith her attorney Enrique Latoison at her side, after meeting with Mayor Nutterin City Hall, Aida Guzmán accepts Puerto Rican flag from rally participant.With only two days of organizing, close to 100 people rallied in front of the Philadelphia City Hall on Oct. 5 to protest police brutality against the Puerto Rican community.The attack occurred on Sept. 30, during a celebration in the community at the end of the Puerto Rican Day Parade. The parade itself was held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, in an area near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, far from North Philadelphia’s Puerto Rican community, but close to a community where gentrification displaced hundreds of Puerto Rican families in the early 1980s.In a video that went viral, taken by Gisela Valentín, a cop is shown hitting Aida Guzmán in the face and in the back of her head, so hard that she fell to the ground. Several other police were surrounding the area while she was being hit, preventing anyone from getting through and allowing the attack to continue. Adding insult to injury, Guzmán, bleeding from the injury, was then handcuffed and arrested on charges of disorderly conduct. The case against her was eventually dropped.This act of police brutality against a woman has outraged many in the city and particularly Puerto Rican women, who complained about the silence from city public figures and elected officials. Only one, Puerto Rican Councilperson María Quiñones, complained about the attack and demanded an investigation. It took several days and several views of the video (http://tinyurl.com/8eybtou), which showed that Guzmán did nothing to provoke the attack, for the police commissioner and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter to issue a statement. Had it not been for the video, the attack would have been ignored completely. It wasn’t until Oct.5 that Nutter offered an apology to Guzmán.But, as the Oct. 5 protesters stated, an apology will not suffice. Philadelphia has been marred by police brutality ever since the infamous Frank Rizzo headed the city’s police department. This is the city where Black Panther members were ordered by police, under Rizzo’s leadership, to strip naked in front of TV cameras in 1970; where Mumia Abu-Jamal was sentenced through an illegitimate “justice” process full of lies and judicial misconduct. It is the city that bombed itself in 1985, dropping an explosive device on the home of MOVE members, an action that killed six adults and five children. Only one adult, Ramona Africa, survived. Although herself a victim of the fire, she spent several years in prison.Philadelphia police and the “justice” system have created a climate where a cop can commit violence with impunity. The cop that attacked Guzmán did so because others were protecting him, and he knew he could get away with it. The police are forces of the state that work on behalf of the rich, protecting their interests — not the interests of the people, and particularly not the interests of people of color or even of poor whites.WW photo: Joseph PietteThe officer has been dismissed for a month, and the police department claims it intends to fire him afterwards. He has not been charged with any crime, and already the infamous Fraternal Order of Police is trying to overturn his dismissal from the force.The “We are all Aida” protest was initiated by Puerto Rican women demanding respect for the women and the community as a whole, and that charges be brought against the individual cop and against all the other ones standing by. The outrage demonstrated by those attending the rally was evidenced by remarks like, “How am I going to teach my sons and grandsons that they should not hit a woman, when they see a police officer hitting a woman for no reason?” and “If they do not charge the officer, there will be riots.”The protest was attended by people from the Puerto Rican community along with other progressive people in the city, including other Latinas, African Americans and whites. At one point, Aida Guzmán herself passed by, accompanied by her attorney. The protesters chanted, “We are all Aida!” to show their support.Margarita Padín, one of the organizers, put the assault into context when she said that “this incident includes a combination of police abuse, abuse against women, and imperialist abuse against second-class citizens of a colony, plus the disgrace of a capitalist system that turns people into commodities of the system, to the point that we see ourselves as commodities. For that reason we see the abuse against another human being as if it is not against us and it does not concern us, and we can then put a monetary value of individual gain on the incident, instead of uniting in solidarity against the abuse.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img The latest Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) is pointing toward economic growth near historical trend, or average. The index ticked up to  –0.02 in June from –0.03 in May, and one of the four broad categories of indicators that make up the index increased month over month as well. Additionally two of the four categories made negative contributions to the index in June. The index’s three-month moving average, CFNAI-MA3, ticked below trend, up to –0.26 in June from –0.27 in May. The Chicago Fed notes that employment-related factors partially drove the increase in the index. Employment-related indicators contributed +0.06 to the CFNAI in June, up from –0.08 in May. Total nonfarm payrolls rose by 224,000 in June after increasing by 72,000 in the previous month. Meanwhile, the contribution of the personal consumption and housing category to the CFNAI was unchanged at –0.05 in June. According to the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group, economic growth is expected to slow. The 2019 and 2020 real GDP growth is predicted to slow to 2.1% and 1.6%, respectively. This prediction has been driven by an inverted yield curve, weak business investment, waning consumer and business sentiment, and ongoing trade and global growth concerns. The ESR Group also predicted that the Fed will cut interest rates by 25 basis points in July, followed by another 25 basis points in December. “As the current U.S. expansion celebrates its tenth anniversary, it does so under an economic backdrop of growing domestic and global uncertainty – and slowing growth,” said Fannie Mae SVP and Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “The heightened uncertainty, stemming in part from the seemingly intractable trade dispute between the U.S. and China, appears to have reduced business’ investment incentive, which is now poised to be a material drag on growth over the forecast period. With consumer spending the principal remaining GDP growth driver, in addition to the recent re-inversion of the yield curve suggesting that market participants expect economic activity to slow further, we believe that the Fed will take a more accommodative posture beginning with a rate cut at the July meeting of the FOMC.” About Author: Seth Welborn Economic Growth Nears Historical Average Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Economy Federal Reserve 2019-07-22 Seth Welborn Previous: Vacancy Rates: The Next Housing Crisis?

By combining data from a number of different vessel reporting and earth observation systems, it creates a single maritime picture of the entire western Indian Ocean.This region-wide picture complements the smaller scale coastal one used by individual countries, and can be used also to combat illegal fishing or immigration. The tool furthermore allows producing maps showing past piracy events or historic ship traffic density.Known as the Piracy, Maritime Awareness and Risks (PMAR) system, it is the result of a three-year study carried out by JRC researchers into technologies intended to build up maritime awareness for authorities in regions affected by piracy.The study was originally initiated following a request of the European Parliament. The first phase led to an invitation from the piracy-affected states for a continuation. This one year trial will help to improve the maritime surveillance capabilities in this area, taking into account existing infrastructures as well as considering the specific needs of the concerned countries and with their full collaboration.Maritime awareness and maritime security research are key pillars of the recently adopted EU Maritime Security Strategy (June 2014) which is a European response to threats and risks in the global maritime domain. The trial implementation of the PMAR system is financed through the 10th European Development Fund under the EU’s programme to promote regional maritime security (MASE) in eastern and southern Africa. It is managed by the Indian Ocean Commission, an international cooperation between the five island states Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Comoros and Réunion.The project is aligned with the IMO’s (International Maritime Organization) Djibouti code of conduct concerning the repression of piracy, and complements other EU and international initiatives on capacity building in the region.[mappress mapid=”14399″]Press release, Image: European Commission, Joint Research Centre November 11, 2014 Share this articlelast_img read more
