This was the renovation of a house which was built in the 1920’s and the hose was surrounded by old rows of houses. The house with a frontage of 4.1meters and depth of 12.8 meters was like so-called ‘sleeping places of an eel’. Because next building was way too close, inside of the house was so dark even though in the daytime. The house had been illogically renovated at several times before so that important pillars and walls were missed.

Those intended not only to reinforce the house but also to softly divide spaces to up and down and left and right.Save this picture!© shinkenchiku-shaThe whole image was glimpsed from openings and slits which were widely opened and the volumes itself were painted with white color so that the texture could visually stand up to indicate the depth and extent.Save this picture!© shinkenchiku-shaThe front of the studio opened to allay was changed from a shutter to windows.

first_imgDavid Cole, Managing Director at fast.MAP, admits that there are several challenges to embracing DRTV. The market is beginning to get crowded, the costs of production and media spend are hight, and the time taken to learn what works and what doesn’t is longer than that for other channels.The guide, however, aims to mitigate some of these by explaining, according to Cole: “how a new kind of benchmark measurement can be deployed to help reduce the risk of DRTV failing. It considers the technical structure of a DRTV advert and the impact that advert has on a donor in a holistic way as well as the likelihood to respond”.The DRTV guide includes a foreword from David Cunningham, Board Member at the Fundraising Regulator:“The evolution of fundraising to a more donor-focused, relationship based activity is to be welcomed and will apply in DRTV too. This important guide is a helpful step in that direction and will support charities to understand the real outcomes of DRTV, how long they may take, and steps to consider to mitigate risk in an expensive fundraising method”.Andrea M Jones at Macmillan Cancer Support welcomed the guide saying: Advertisement “This guide explains how a new kind of DRTV benchmark measurement can complement live testing to help reduce the risk of DRTV failing.  It considers….the impact that advert will have on a donor in an holistic way as well as the likelihood to respond. It provides Macmillan with early indications of an advert’s relative strengths and weaknesses prior to launch”.Following publication of this guide fast.MAP staff are meeting individually with the Fundraising Directors of 16 of the largest UK charities and benchmarking their own DRTV adverts.fast.MAP’s A guide to optimising DRTV creative performance is available at £50 + VAT.

Not surprisingly given the company’s data background it devotes a chapter to “the fundamental importance of DRTV testing”, followed by infomration on measuring and predicting DRTV performance.It suggests DRTV engagement benchmarks, based on interviews with tends of thousands of donors over the past 10 years. It suggests that both originality and affinity are key factors in driving immediate donations.It concludes with a case study of the Children’s Air Ambulance and its TV advert:[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjcXPtenUaM[/youtube] Howard Lake | 8 November 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19center_img New guide to fundraising from charity TV appeals published Tagged with: DRTV  234 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 25, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA 10 Year Projections Not Encouraging for Corn and Soybean Producers USDA 10 Year Projections Not Encouraging for Corn and Soybean Producers SHARE SHARE Previous articleCompromise Reached on Chicken LegislationNext articleUSDA Lowers 2016 Prices and Acres at Outlook Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter USDA 10 Year Projections Not Encouraging for Corn and Soybean ProducersIf you are not happy with the current level of corn and soybean prices, then you are not going to be happy for a long time because the long term outlook from USDA is not encouraging. A decade is a long time, and a lot can happen over 10 years, but that has not stopped the analysts at USDA from projecting crop prices for the next 10 years.  These projections do NOT take into account droughts, floods, wars, economic booms or busts, or even advances in technology, or anything else that would upset the current trends of supply and demand. That is good because, unless something dramatic happens, corn prices are not going to change very much, says David Stallings, “We believe they will continue to decline in 2016 and 2017 and then increase just marginally.”By 2025, they expect corn prices to be averaging 3.75 up a whole dime from this year’s projected average. As for soybeans, Stalling said, “We see prices falling in 2016 and 2017, but then see a decline in soybean planted acres and an increase in soybean prices.” They are forecasting soybean prices to gain 40 cents a bushel by 2025.Things do look a tad better for wheat long term but not in the short run, says Stalling, “Higher stocks and lower corn prices will keep the wheat market under pressure through 2017, but then a pickup in export demand will help prices recover a bit.” Wheat prices are forecast to average 4.95 by 2025.

It is the corresponding obligation of Centre as well as the State Government to ensure that fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 27 of the Constitution of India is not violated.” The Madhya Pradesh High Court has ordered the Central Government to forthwith finalize the National Policy for Rare Diseases, 2020, in not later than 6 months. The order has been passed by a Single bench of Justice Nandita Dubey in a writ petition filed by the father of a 4-year old “Gaucher” patient, who had been unable to afford his child’s treatment, especially amid the Covid crisis. The court was informed that the National Health Mission (NHM) had borne 40% of the cost of treatment, as a “one-time assistance”, under the scheme of Rashtriya Arogya Nidhi (RAN). Under this scheme, one-time financial assistance is provided to the patients belonging to the families living below poverty line. 40% of the expense has to be borne by NHM and the remaining 60% by the Central Government. Taking exception to this arrangement, the bench required the Government to ensure that it makes provision for financial assistance on a recurring basis under the new Policy and does not make poverty a precondition for such assistance, as disease does not seek a person on the basis of his/her financial ability. “While finalizing the 2020 policy, it shall be borne in mind that rare diseases like Gaucher etc. require continuous financial assistance for continuous and uninterrupted treatment and “One Time Financial Assistance” and requirement of being “Below Poverty Line” cannot be made a condition for grant of financial assistance, as disease does not seek a child/person on the basis of his/her financial ability or economic condition,” the bench directed. The bench was conscious of the submission made by the Petitioner that the disease was not a one-time problem, but required a lifelong treatment. The National Policy for Treatment for Rare Diseases, 2020 is pending with the Central Government. As submitted before the Court, the Policy had been finalized and is placed on the website of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare inviting comments/views of the stakeholders including States and Union Territories and the general public. Appearing for the Union of India, Advocate Vikram Singh informed the Court that the Centre had not released 60% of its share for the child’s treatment under the prevalent RAN Scheme, as the State of MP had neither shown any interest nor communicated with the Centre with regard to the draft policy. It was submitted that unless a new policy is finalized and implemented, no financial help can be extended to the petitioner. Rejecting this argument, the court observed that the Government could not refuse to discharge its obligations under the scheme, merely on account of “non-cooperation” of the state Government to draft a new policy. “The Central Government cannot shy away from its responsibilities on the ground that draft policy has not been finalized due to the non-corporation of M.P. State Government. It is for both the governments to resolve the matter amicably, especially when both the governments are ruled by the same party,” the court observed while reminding the Government that right to health is a facet of right to life under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. The bench has therefore directed the Central Government to immediately pay the 60% of the cost of treatment of Petitioner’s son as its share under the RAN Scheme. The court has also asked the State Government to pay the balance of the amount, 40% or more required for the “continuous and uninterrupted treatment” of Petitioner’s son for a period of one year.

The residential total amount raised increased by over 12 per cent in the monthly comparisons, and over 14 percent in the quarterly and yearly comparisons – the third consecutive month that we have seen double-digit rises in this regard.”Auction HouseAuction House saw an improved success rate of 76.2 per cent in November with 144 properties sold, raising a total of £12.9 million, the company’s latest figures show. In total, the firm achieved 2,659 sales in the first 11 months of 2014 with over £312 million raised.Auction House’s Roger Lake said: “To have posted cumulative sales up by over 15 per cent this year is really gratifying. It also shows that the auctions market is healthy and strengthening, which is good news for both sellers and buyers.” AllsopAllsop sold 185 properties at their last residential auction of the year last week, raising £56.6 million with a success rate of 82 per cent. This brings the residential total of the year to £421 million compared to £336 million last year.Speaking after the sale, Auctioneer Gary Murphy (left) commented, “2014 has been an extraordinary year for us. December’s sale was particularly active. Despite the recent hikes in stamp duty, demand for higher value lots remained steady.” Sutton KershThis has also proved to be another successful year for Sutton Kersh, with the Merseyside firm selling 517 lots at its seven auctions in 2014, which produced total revenue of about £39.7 million.At its final sale of the year last week Sutton Kersh sold 80 percent of the lots offered and generated proceeds of over £6.4 million.Auction Manageress, Cathy Holt (right), commented: “2014 was another highly successful year in which we consistently attracted large attendances and delivered strong results on behalf of our customers.”EddisonsEddisons raised total proceeds of around £58 million from its 2014 auction programme, following completion of the three-day December sale.Throughout the year the firm staged 19 auctions in Leeds, Manchester and London selling 622 – 73 per cent sales success – of the lots offered. At the December sale 76 lots sold, generating over £8.5 million.Simon Bailey, Director and Auctioneer at Eddisons, said: “It is clear that auctions remain an effective route to market, particularly where the true market value is largely unknown.”Graham PennyGraham Penny Auctions Derby also concluded its 2014 auction calendar this month, ending the year on a high with its latest auction helping the firm total over £34 million in sales in 2014.The auction, at the iPro Stadium saw 35 varied residential and commercial properties, land and other lots sell under the hammer in front of a packed room of bidders and the BBC’s Homes under the Hammer TV crew.Graham Penny (left), Auctioneer at Graham Penny Auctions, commented: “It’s wonderful to know that we are achieving the best prices for our vendor clients and demonstrating that selling by auction is a valid and profitable method of sale.auction activity auction houses residential auctions January 26, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgJERSEY CITY — Earl Morgan, a longtime reporter and columnist for the Jersey Journal, died at his Astor Place home on June 5.He was 75 years old. An outspoken supporter of civil rights and equal opportunity for marginalized people in Jersey City and beyond, Morgan became a leading spokesperson on a variety of social issues – both in print as well as in appearances during his career as a journalist and citizen activist.Morgan, a lifelong resident of Jersey City, was a civil activist in the area before taking a job as a journalist at the Hudson-Dispatch and later The Jersey Journal.He was a persistent critic of government policy when it failed to provide equal opportunities to minorities in the community, and was vehement about the rise in crime and poverty – issues for which he held public officials accountable.Since 2011, he was a vocal support of implementing the findings of the Croson Study, a report that appeared to show local government was not awarding contracts to minority- and women-owned businesses.According a report published by his colleagues at the Jersey Journal, Morgan saw the election of Glenn Cunningham as Jersey City mayor in 2001 as one of the significant events in the history of the city. Cunningham was the first African-American and to date the only African American to serve in that post.Jennifer Morrill, formerly a city spokesperson under Cunningham and other Jersey City mayors, worked with Morgan at the Journal early in her career. She called Morgan a mentor.Published accolades for Morgan’s work have poured in from public officials and others in a testimony to the breadth of his influence over the last several decades.At the time of his death, Morgan, as reported in the Jersey Journal, was working on a book called “Black Lives That Mattered in Jersey City.” He is survived by his wife and two children, Tawana and Kyle.
