But I am hopeful things will improve and I will get to fight later in the year. I think it will work out,” the 34-year-old, who holds the distinction of being India’s first Olympic medallist in boxing, had told PTI.“Obviously, I am at a loss but there is nothing that can be done. So, you just make peace with it and wait for things to normalise,” he added. The 34-year-old said he is continuing to train at home in Delhi to stay in shape. “I have everything at home to ensure that I don’t need to step out. I do my training on my own, which is not unusual because I have the luxury of a trainer only when I am in England,” he said.Vijender’s trainer is Manchester-based Lee Beard, who joins him a few weeks before his fights. “The idea is to keep my body in shape for whenever the action resumes. I am doing it at home because in any case, you cannot move out,” he said.

The world’s biggest boxing promotion company Top Rank which also promotes the Indian has said that Pro-Boxing will take some time before it gathers itself from the menace of Covid19.Top Rank Chair Bob Arum said that while MMA is set to resume with UFC 249 on April 18, boxing “will not be following suit anytime soon,” according to Case Keefer of the LAS VEGAS SUN. Arum said, “All the boxing promoters realize we’re in this together and we’ve got to cancel the events and keep them canceled until we get the all-clear from the governmental authorities.” Keefer notes at present, Top Rank’s schedule, which included a pair of title fights this month, “remains in limbo.” But Arum is “preaching patience to his stable of fighters,” understanding the “desperation from fighters to stay active, even in the midst of a global pandemic.” Keefer notes fighters, as independent contractors, “don’t get paid unless they perform, leaving many in a panic to make ends meet as bouts are canceled.” Regarding Fury-Wilder III, which was postponed late last month, Arum now “hopes that fight can take place in the fall instead, but thinks putting any firm timetable in place is a mistake”India’s professional boxing star Vijender Singh, is still optimistic of resuming his currently on-hold career in the second half of the year. Unbeaten in the circuit with 12 wins, Vijender is contracted with Hall of Famer Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions in the US, which has been ravaged by the deadly outbreak with the death toll nearing 12,000.

3 reasons I’d buy ASOS shares TODAY

first_img When I covered ASOS (LSE: ASC) shares last July, the stock was out of favour because the online fashion retail giant had just issued a profit warning. At the time, I said the risk/reward proposition was “attractive” due to the fact that ASOS’s share price had tanked but the group’s problems looked short-term in nature. Fast forward to today, and ASOS shares are now around 50% higher than they were at the time of my July article as the group has recovered from its setback. That’s a great result for those who were brave enough to go against the herd and look past the company’s short-term problems. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Examining the investment case for ASOS, however, I believe the stock has the potential to keep rising. Here are three reasons (the third is particularly interesting) I’d buy its shares today.ASOS has its mojo backThe first reason I like the look of ASOS shares right now is that the company has its mojo back. Not only did the group issue a solid set of full-year results in October, but it also issued a trading statement on 23 January that showed it had a fantastic end to 2019. Indeed, for the four months to 31 December, group revenue surged 20% to £1,106m, which is an excellent result when you consider that many UK retailers are struggling right now. Other highlights included: A 23% increase in customer visits Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 3 reasons I’d buy ASOS shares TODAY Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” CEO Nick Beighton also said: “We remain confident in our ability to capture the substantial opportunity ahead of us.” Earnings and price target upgradesI also like the fact analysts have been upgrading their earnings per share (EPS) forecasts recently. According to Stockopedia, in the last month, the consensus forecast for FY2020 EPS has risen by 1.04p, while the consensus forecast for FY2021 EPS has lifted 3.16p. Earnings upgrades tend to be good for a company’s share price.It’s also worth noting analysts at Credit Suisse have raised their price target for the stock not once, but twice over the last month. On 17 January, the broker upped its target price to 4,000p from 3,650p. Then, on 24 January, it raised its target price to 4,100p from 4,000p. Again, this is likely to help the share price. I’ll point out the broker’s current price target is 25% higher than the current share price.CEO purchaseFinally, another reason I’m bullish on ASOS shares right now is that Beighton has just purchased more shares in the company. On 29 January, the CEO acquired another 1,629 shares at a price of 3,060p, spending roughly £50K on stock.The last time Beighton purchased stock, the shares rose from around 2,100p to near 3,700p in just a few months. His insight into the company’s future prospects was clearly better than analysts. So I see this latest purchase as a bullish signal.The final wordI’ll point out that ASOS shares remain expensive. Currently, the forward-looking P/E ratio is about 59 (falling to 38 using the FY2021 EPS forecast). This means the stock could fall sharply if growth stalls.Overall, however, I think the investment case is attractive. Given that Beighton is buying, I think now is a good time to be building a position in the stock.

A unique project in its context, this house is located in a neighborhood of Pune that has abundant greenery. The apt use of natural elements in its creation ― such as water bodies, bridges, stone walls, and landscaped areas on all levels ― helps it merge seamlessly with its environs on the one hand while making it stand out on account of its architectural beauty.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Hemant PatilSave this picture!© Hemant PatilThis is home to a family of six. The brief for N.D.D.C. was a modest material template culminating into a residence that would be rich in spatial experience. Ample cross-ventilation, keeping in mind the occupants’ need for privacy, as well as flexibility in space change in accordance with family evolution were also an important consideration. Therefore, the project was based on an H-shaped plan wherein all the spaces have three external walls, thus maintaining a nice “in” and “out” connection. The use of mirrors and reflective glass has lent itself to an optical illusion to maximize the landscaped areas, thus underscoring the feeling of being in the lap of nature.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hemant PatilClimate is a crucial factor in design and construction. Keeping this in mind, shading devices have been used here in the form of huge cantilevered slabs that give a sort of “hovering effect” while, at the same time, offer grounding to the building. Similarly, vertical screen facades have been devised as a barrier for the elements. Inside, the strategic use of triple-height atrium(s) makes for ample stack effect and also helps in cross-ventilation. In keeping with the predominantly “green” character of this project, an indirect evaporative cooling system has been installed extensively with a view to reducing the reliance on conventional air-conditioners.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Urban Village / TEAM_BLDGSelected ProjectsXiao Shannan Restaurant / Yue-Design Space Design StudioSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939128/the-hovering-gardens-house-niraj-doshi-design-consultancy Clipboard Vidyutsallagar Projects Electrical Consultant: Photographs G.

Beneficiary framing examined in new Rogare paper

first_img“The underlying issue is that fundraisers and service delivery staff often have opposing views and attitudes about how beneficiaries ought to be portrayed in advertising, marketing and fundraising materials.“Fundraisers tend to favour those images that they believe will maximise income. These images tend to show in quite stark context the plight and suffering of beneficiaries. Service delivery staff – and others at charities – tend to favour images that reflect more ‘positive’ values about beneficiaries, maintain their dignity and focus on the solution to the problem.“We believe that adherents of the both frames have become polarised in the discussion and debate, which has become increasingly adversarial and may in fact be ‘ideological’. Our objective is therefore to ‘reframe’ this whole debate to close this gap and achieve a new ethical consensus on this matter.” Rogare’s six planned papers from this project will be:Review of the ‘philosophy’ behind approaches to this topic to establish the philosophical/ideological nature of the debate What works and why it works in positive and negative frames (the paper that is published today) Beneficiaries’ attitudes to how charities tell their stories and use their images What are the best ways to talk to beneficiaries and service users to get their stories?What the existing codes of practice say about using images A final report presenting a normative argument about how beneficiaries ought to be framed in fundraising.While papers 1 and 6 bookend the project, the other papers will be published as and when they are completed. The next to be published, during the summer, will be Paper 3 – written by Save the Children’s global director of creative content Jess Crombie.   147 total views,  1 views today Thinktank Rogare has released the first paper from its project on beneficiary framing, looking at fundraisers’ and service delivery teams’ views on how beneficiaries should be represented in marketing and fundraising materials.The project seeks to develop an ethical consensus about the best way to represent beneficiaries in charity marketing and fundraising, and the report, Positive and negative feedback, is the first from Rogare’s initiative which also aims to “close the ideological gap” between fundraisers and service delivery teams, who often have opposing views on how beneficiaries should be represented in marketing materials.Its key findings reveal that fundraisers and service delivery favour different frames, and that difference of opinion may be so entrenched that it has become ‘ideological’. It also suggests that negative framing using sad images may work best for donor acquisition, where new donors must be ‘attracted’ to the cause through an emotional punch. Positive framing on the other hand it says may work better in donor retention, where fundraisers are trying to build lasting relationships with donors who are already engaged with their causes.The discussion paper is the first in a series of six planned as part of the project, and looks at what the academic evidence says about the use of positive and negative framing in a fundraising context. It finds that while there is little existing research on the subject, what there is gives tentative support to anecdotal evidence from fundraisers – that sad images raise more money. It has been mainly researched and written by Rogare International Advisory Panel member Ruth Smyth, of charity creative agency BoldLight.Smyth points out that although fundraisers tend to understand positive and negative framing typically as referring to ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ images, the academic research considers framing as whether something is presented in terms of a ‘loss’ or a ‘gain’, such as: with positive framing, the positive impact your donation will have (e.g. 10,000 people can be saved from starvation), and with negative framing – what will happen if you don’t donate (e.g. 10,000 people will die of starvation).Smyth said:“What research there is lends tentative support the commonly-held practitioner belief that negative framing, especially sad imagery, elicits more donations through engaging people’s sympathy – and negativity bias means people pay more attention to negative information. Research also mostly supports the idea that negative imagery using sad faces tends to elicit more donations when there is little other information, or limited time to process this. But the evidence is not overwhelming.” Rogare’s director Ian MacQuillin said: Advertisement  148 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Beneficiary framing examined in new Rogare papercenter_img Melanie May | 22 May 2018 | News Tagged with: Marketing research Rogare About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A graduate of Southern Methodist University, she has been a reporter, editor, and publisher in the Dallas area for more than 15 years. During her 10 years at Advocate Media and Dallas Magazine, she published thousands of articles covering local politics, real estate, development, crime, the arts, entertainment, and human interest, among other topics. She has won two national Mayborn School of Journalism Ten Spurs awards for nonfiction, and has penned pieces for Texas Monthly, Salon.com, Dallas Observer, Edible, and the Dallas Morning News, among others. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Many of the factors that defined 2020’s state of the housing market—low mortgage rates, dwindling inventory, and a refinancing frenzy, to name a few—have been exhaustively reported. LendingTree’s VP and Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze dug a little deeper to explore other mortgage and housing trends including what kind of borrowers got home financing, how mortgages were structured, and how Americans managed debt.The full report is on LendingTree.com, but here a few things stand out.One of the first topics Kapfidze touches upon is homeownership and equity. He points out that Americans have amassed $20.4 trillion in home equity, adding that equity isn’t necessarily equal.”Although Americans have a staggering amount of home equity, real estate wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated in the hands of fewer homeowners as overall homeownership rates fall.”He goes on to mention the mildly surprising fact that fewer Americans own homes today than in 2004.”In 2004, 69% of all Americans owned homes. Today, that number has fallen to 65.8%.”The economist says mortgage origination levels have recovered from their housing crisis lows.”In 2008, financial institutions originated just $1.4 trillion in new mortgages. However, by 2016, new first-lien mortgages topped $2 trillion. Though that number fell in subsequent years, it rose to $2.38 trillion in 2019 and continued to rise to $2.49 trillion through the third quarter of 2020.”From where are borrowers securing the most loans? Kapfidze says that in 2010, three banks (Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Chase) originated 56% of all mortgages.”Since 2010, though, the number of mortgages originated by nonbanks has increased; nonbanks, with more lenient lending standards now originate the majority of mortgage loans,” he said.The role of federally controlled lenders has changed, he notes.”As private securitization firms exited the mortgage landscape, programs from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have filled in some of the void,” Kapfidze said. “FHA and VA loans can help qualified borrowers get loans despite having smaller down payments or lower incomes and credit scores. FHA and VA loans accounted for 17.4% of all loans issued in Q3 2020, down from 19.5% compared to the same period in 2019.”What sort of credit it takes to secure a loan has been a moving target of sorts over the past decade. Today, the pandemic might be contributing to tightening standards.”As of November 2020, the median FICO Score for a newly originated mortgage was 786. Though the credit score needed to be approved for a mortgage varies, this high median score can be attributed in large part to tightening lending standards in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Kapfidze said.The pandemic among many things has impacted delinquency rates, which were 2.8% in Q3 2020, well below the 2010 peak of 11.5%.”These low rates in the face of recession can be attributed to a variety of factors, including an uptick of mortgages in forbearance as well additional unemployment benefits supplied by the government.”In Kapfidze’s words, here is a summary of the study’s further findings:Total mortgage debt as of Q3 2020: $10.8 trillionAverage mortgage balance as of April 2020: $151,686Average new mortgage balance as of 2019: $285,434Homeownership rate (share of owner-occupied homes) as of Q4 2020: 67%Homeowners with a mortgage as of 2019: 63%Median credit score for a new mortgage as of Q3 2020: 786Average down payment made as of Q3 2020: $15,023Mortgages originated in 2019: $2.38 trillionShare of purchase mortgages originated by nonbank lenders as of Q3 2020: 69%Share of refinance loans originated by nonbanks as of Q3 2020: 73%Share of mortgages with a delinquency rate of 30 days or more as of Q3 2020: 2.81% Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Factors That Defined Housing in 2020 Previous: Market Still at Risk of Future ‘Zombie’ Property Wave Next: Number of Hispanic Homeowners Expected to Soar by 2040 2021-02-25 Christina Hughes Babb Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Share 1Save About Author: Christina Hughes Babb The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

We have the best of the best and it was reassuring seeing how we are doing. I knew then (after the school tours) that we could make February 1 possible.”School Board Vice President Dr. Patrick Kane heads the COVID-19 Committee.

The school district will also explore the possibility of obtaining more classroom space through the city.“We all went through the schools and looked at how they were set up – inspections,” Dr. Kane said.Everyone wore masks and remained six feet apart. Plexiglas barriers separated desks and sanitizer was in many locations at all of the schools, he added.But he cautioned that this is a fluid situation.“The district is trying to be as proactive as possible. As you know this is an incredible fluid situation right now,” he said. “All we can do is continue to stay up to date and plan accordingly. We are trying to adapt and keep everyone as safe as possible and optimize the experience.”During Dr. Kane’s PowerPoint presentation, he showed slides of how each school is set up.To be successful and to remain open, he stressed that it will take a team effort.“We need everyone’s help.” Dr. Kane said.School Board President Joe Clark thanked Dr. Kane for his presentation and the three-hour tour of the schools.“It is fluid,” Clark said. “It definitely is unchartered territory. We will get there. The goal is to get every student back in school.”In other matters, Athletic Director Geoffrey Haines did a PowerPoint presentation showcasing the fall sports teams.Haines showed sports highlights from the top athletes.“Each season, we always have spectacular teams and this fall was no exception — although it was a different season,” he said.Haines also displayed photos of the team wins.“We started off knowing it would be tough with all the protocols. We had challenges but we got through them and had a very successful season,” Haines said, adding that all protocols from mask wearing to social distancing were adhered to.He also thanked the administration for its ongoing support.For more information visit oceancityschools.orgThe Primary School will be the first in the district to offer five days of in-person instruction since the pandemic.last_img read more
