Vodafone had hoped for closer to £7bn for the asset, which it is purging as part of its strategy to offload non-core assets.Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao has said he will not be forced into making the sale and several analysts said although they did not think that £6bn was an unfair price, they thought that Vodafone could wait to see if the price improves.A crucial part of the deal will be whether Vodafone and Vivendi can agree a long-term roaming deal which would allow Vodafone customers to access the SFR network in the future.In November Vodafone sold its £3.1bn stake in Japanese carrier SoftBank. Earlier last year it confirmed the £4.3bn sale of its interests in China Mobile. Other non-core ventures likely to be disposed of soon include Vodafone’s 25 per cent stake in Poland’s Polkomtel.A final decision on its large minority stake in US-based Verizon Wireless is not expected until 2012 but analysts expect Vodafone to maintain its interests after indications dividend payments will resume later this year.Vodafone’s shares closed 1.8 per cent lower yesterday at 175.74p.

Retired Indianapolis bishop nominated for Eastern Michigan provisional bishop role

first_imgRetired Indianapolis bishop nominated for Eastern Michigan provisional bishop role Submit a Job Listing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan] The standing committee of the Diocese of Eastern Michigan has nominated the Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, retired bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis, as candidate for bishop provisional to be voted on at their 23rd diocesan convention from Oct. 20 to 21.Eastern Michigan’s former bishop, the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley, concluded his ministry in the diocese in June after accepting a call from the presiding bishop to serve on his staff as bishop for pastoral development.In a letter to the diocese, the standing committee articulated its reasons for calling for a bishop provisional rather than calling for a search for a bishop diocesan, saying, “In most cases, a bishop departs their diocese through retirement. This allows the diocese to have some lead time to go through the search process, nominate a slate of candidates and vote to elect their next bishop before the exiting bishop departs. Because our bishop left for another position and not for retirement, we did not have that time. We do have the time and space to faithfully consider the issues and opportunities confronting our diocese – these are not limited to budget realities, decreasing and emerging populations, and cultural trends away from church-attendance and religious life. Like a congregation engaging an interim pastor, we hope, with a provisional bishop as a companion, to faithfully engage the entire diocese in this exciting conversation to discover where God is leading us in our life and ministry as the Episcopal Church in Eastern Michigan.”If elected at October’s diocesan convention, Waynick would begin her tenure with Eastern Michigan immediately serving on a part-time basis, performing all episcopal functions including ordinations and confirmations, as well as other traditional duties of a bishop including staff supervision, visitations, and more. Waynick would work closely with the standing committee as they begin to work with the people of the diocese to study their mission and ministry and to move forward into the next phase of diocesan episcopal authority.Waynick served as the 10th bishop of Indianapolis for 20 years before her retirement in 2017. She began her ministry in the Diocese of Michigan serving churches in Bloomfield Hills and Pontiac before being elected bishop in 1997. Beyond her ministry in Indianapolis, Waynick served on several General Convention legislative committees, on the abundance committee of the Church Pension Fund and on the task force to revise Title IV (Disciplinary Canons). She continues to serve as president of the Disciplinary Board for Bishops and as a governor of the Anglican Centre in Rome. Waynick has been married for 49 years to Larry, and they have two grown children, Elizabeth of Irvine, California, and Steve of Canton, Michigan. The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan is made up of 43 congregations throughout the eastern half of the lower peninsula, north of Detroit and Lansing.

Charities in West Yorkshire could use this opportunity to recognise and reward a male volunteer. The deadline for entries 20 September 2004. Model Nell McAndrew is fronting a competition being run by national volunteering charity TimeBank and the Yorkshire Evening Post to search for West Yorkshire’s best male volunteers, modern day heroes who are “Yorkshire Champions”.The regional competition aims to recognise these commendable men and to inspire more men to volunteer. Throughout September, the campaign will be asking people to nominate men in West Yorkshire who make a real difference by volunteering their own time for the benefit of others. The winner will be given £500 and four runners-up will each be given £200 to donate to their cause.

New guidance on CRB checks for volunteers available

first_img The Office of the Third Sector has published updated ./guidance to help charities and organisations that use volunteers understand when they do and do not need to carry on Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks on volunteers.The new ./guidance is designed to “help cut unnecessary red tape”. The Office of the Third Sector (OTS) says that it “responds to concerns voiced by the voluntary sector that potential volunteers can be put off if they are asked to undergo a CRB check without good reason”. Specifically the ./guidance is a response to recommendations put to the Government by Baroness Neuberger, the Government’s Independent Volunteering Champion.Phil Hope, Minister for the Third Sector, said: “The Government has a duty to protect vulnerable people and CRB checks play an important part in this. However, it is a real waste if volunteers are being put off doing their hugely valuable work because checks are being carried out unnecessarily. Risk has to be managed properly and proportionately and I hope that this ./guidance will help organisations by giving them a clear step by step process to follow.”The 23-page ./guidance “Criminal Records Bureau checks: Guidance for volunteering” can be downloaded from the OTS’ website:www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/~/media/assets/www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/third_sector/OTS_CRB%20pdf.ashx  31 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Law / policy Volunteering 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.

Senate committee’s shield law project threatens investigative journalism

first_img News September 19, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Senate committee’s shield law project threatens investigative journalism United StatesAmericas News RSF_en Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Follow the news on United States WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas center_img to go further Help by sharing this information News The draft federal law on the protection of journalists’ sources – the so-called media “shield law” – that the Senate Judiciary Committee approved on 12 September unfortunately falls far short of Reporters Without Borders’s recommendation on this subject.Its reintroduction in Congress following revelations about the seizure of the Associated Press’ phone records was an encouraging sign. But some of its current provisions do not provide enough protection and could even pose a danger to investigative journalism.“The version of the shield law that was passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee has major flaws,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is based on a much too restrictive definition of who is a journalist, one that in practice excludes bloggers and other news providers. “And as well as limiting its beneficiaries, the law would not necessarily apply to all those covering national security issues and other matters of major public interest. It will be an empty shell if it is not amended so as to provide journalists and other news providers with more protection.“In its current form, the shield law would not have prevented the Department of Justice’s seizure of the AP’s phone records, it would not have given James Rosen of Fox News any more protection against the FBI’s hunt for his sources, and it would not have spared James Risen of the New York Times from a subpoena ordering him to name his sources, a subpoena still in effect.“These examples nonetheless all testify to investigative journalism’s importance. What would we have known about the Watergate scandal without investigative journalism? Or the extremely grave human rights violations that have been committed in the name of the war on terror? When a witch-hunt is on for sources, this shield law would not be up to the job.”Some senators have made no secret about their intentions. Dianne Feinstein (Democrat-California) said only “real reporters” should be protected, adding that she could not support the bill if it provided protection to people like Edward Snowden.A similar comment was made by Chuck Schumer (Democrat-New York), the senator who introduced the bill: “We’re very careful in this bill to distinguish journalists from those who shouldn’t be protected, WikiLeaks and all those.” Schumer added that it would not cover “any person or entity whose principal function (…) is to publish primary source documents that have been disclosed to such person or entity without authorization.”So how much real confidentiality would journalists be accorded if the bill were passed in its present form? It is a worrying question. As well as Risen, another journalist is currently facing the possibility of imprisonment if he refuses to name a source.It is Joe Hosey, the editor of the Illinois-based news website Joliet Patch, who was given 21 days by a judge on 31 August to name the person who gave him police and autopsy reports in the investigation into a double murder.

Every last one of us, at some point in our life, were raised in the boys and girls club. We just knew this was an opportunity for us to make an impact.“Our main objective is to serve. It’s a very heartfelt opportunity to do something for people who are in a position less fortunate than some of us.”One of the families that One Objective helped on Monday evening was Deann Evans and her six children. Evan’s children are 16, 15, 14, 9, 8 and 2.Evans, who works for Focused Care of Midland, was unaware that the check totaled $1,000.

Q1 Foreclosure Activity Fueled by New Starts and Auctions

The U.S. Foreclosure Market Report released by RealtyTrac reported approximately 117,000 foreclosure filings for the month, down 23 percent from March 2013.Foreclosure starts increased by 7.0 percent on a month-over-month basis, and foreclosure auctions increased monthly by 6.0 percent, fueling the larger foreclosure activity numbers for the month.The report found that the average time to complete a foreclosure rose to 572 days nationwide, a 1.0 percent increase from the previous quarter’s average of 564 days. However, the average time to complete a foreclosure is still up 20 percent from the first quarter of 2013, when the average completion time was 477 days.Foreclosure activity is the lowest it has been since the second quarter of 2007. Approximately 341,000 U.S. properties had a foreclosure notice in Q1 2014, down 3 percent from the previous quarter and down 23 percent from Q1 2013.1 in every 385 U.S. housing units had a foreclosure filing in the first quarter.”Now that the foreclosure deluge has dried up, banks are turning their attention back to properties that have been sitting in foreclosure limbo for some time,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac.Repossessed properties were approximately 28,000 for the month. March’s figure represents a 5 percent drop from the previous month. Repossessed properties on a year-over-year basis fell 34 percent—an 80-month low and the lowest level since July 2007.”Banks will also now be able to devote more resources to dealing with the lingering inventory of nearly half a million already-foreclosed homes that still need to be sold,” Blomquist added. “Our estimates indicate only 10 percent of these bank-owned properties are listed for sale and more than half are still occupied by the former homeowner or tenant.”In addition to foreclosure data, RealtyTrac also provided an update of occupied REOs, which the company describes as “bank-owned properties still occupied after the completed foreclosure.”Of the roughly 259,000 bank-owned properties with available owner-occupancy data, and out of a total of approximately 483,000 bank-owned homes nationwide, 51 percent were still occupied by the former homeowner or a tenant.The average time to sell a bank-owned property increased by 34 percent to 226 days, up from 168 days in Q1 of 2013.States with above-average time to sell REOs included Texas (347 days), Michigan (342 days), Minnesota (313 days), Colorado (305 days), and Georgia (276 days).Florida was first in foreclosure activity by state, followed by Maryland, Nevada, and Illinois.
