first_img Directly-elected mayors in England are in a strong position to boost local donations from philanthropists and businesses, according to Charities Aid Foundation.The charity, one of the UK’s largest foundations, has published a discussion paper in which it suggests some practical steps for the 23 directly elected mayors to take.Giving for the CityIt reminds them that philanthropy has long played a major role in the development of the great towns and cities. Yet the tradition of civil philanthropy has also been in decline for some time. Mayors, it argues, are in a position to reverse this and start a revival of this tradition.CAF’s Giving for the City project explains how current mayors can take inspiration from some of the great philanthropist-mayors of the past like Andrew Barclay-Walker in Liverpool and Joseph Strutt in Derby, or by following the international example of Michael Bloomberg who harnessed philanthropy for the benefit of the City of New York and who has inspired other cities such as Los Angeles to follow suit.Good examples have already been set by the establish of Mayor’s Funds in Manchester by Andy Burnham (on his first day in office) and in London by Sadiq Khan.Five steps to growing civic philanthropyIn today’s discussion paper Chain Links: how mayors can build a culture of philanthropy CAF has set five challenges for the directly-elected mayors.·         Establish a Mayor’s Fund to attract donations for addressing local challenges and issues. ·         Publish a philanthropy strategy, detailing the approach of the mayoral office to civic philanthropy.·         Appoint a philanthropy liaison to develop relationships with potential philanthropists and local charities.·         Develop a clear narrative and vision about the role of philanthropy in their town, city or region.·         Use the profile and status of the mayoralty to bring together philanthropists, charities, foundations, companies and public sector bodies to encourage partnerships and identify shared goals.This paper will be followed by a more detailed report later this year with wide-ranging recommendations for building a culture of civic philanthropy. CAF will also be discussing the proposals with local and national politicians at party conferences this autumn.Rhodri Davies, Programme Leader of the Giving Thought policy programme at CAF, explained why CAF was focusing on the role of the new directly-elected Mayors in England. He said: “By championing local giving and putting in place the right structures and strategies, mayors have a golden opportunity to embrace the generosity of people and business to help address local issues. “  35 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Advertisement England’s mayors could boost civic philanthropy, says CAFcenter_img  36 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Howard Lake | 17 July 2017 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgHarvard College announced today (Feb. 24) that it will restore nonbinding early action as part of its admissions process this fall and significantly enhance its recruiting program to assist talented students from modest economic backgrounds in navigating the admissions process. Harvard also announced it will increase its investment in undergraduate financial aid next year to more than $160 million. Currently, more than 60 percent of Harvard College students receive scholarship aid, and the average grant is about $38,000.In 2007, Harvard eliminated its nonbinding early action program on a trial basis and moved to a single admissions deadline, announcing at the time that it would evaluate the impact of the change after several years.“We piloted the elimination of early action out of concern that college admissions had become too complex and pressured for all students, and out of particular concern for students at under-resourced high schools who might not be able to access the early admissions process,” said Harvard President Drew Faust. “Over the past several years, however, interest in early admissions has increased, as students and families from across the economic spectrum seek certainty about college choices and financing. Our goal now is to reinstitute an early-action program consistent with our bedrock commitment to access, affordability, and excellence.”“We looked carefully at trends in Harvard admissions these past years and saw that many highly talented students, including some of the best-prepared low-income and underrepresented minority students, were choosing programs with an early-action option, and therefore were missing out on the opportunity to consider Harvard. We have decided that the College and our students will be best served by restoring an early option,” said Dean Michael D. Smith of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.Harvard’s concerns about equity and transparency will continue to guide the structure of its admission program. It will maintain a nonbinding approach, which maximizes freedom and flexibility for students. As in the past, students can apply under the single-choice, early-action program by Nov. 1 and will be notified by Dec. 15, at which point students completing financial aid applications will receive notice of their awards. Regular decision will continue to operate as usual, with applications due on Jan. 1 and notification on April 1. All students, whether admitted under early action or regular decision, will have until May 1 to decide whether to attend.To ensure that the return to early action serves Harvard’s commitment to access and diversity across many dimensions, the change in admissions policy will be accompanied by enhancements in the College’s recruiting program, including a new program promoting transparency in college admissions, greater outreach, and targeted staff visits to schools where few students apply early to college; increased involvement of Harvard undergraduates throughout the year in three major recruiting efforts — the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative, the Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program, and the Undergraduate Admissions Council’s Return to High School Program; and enhanced web features providing families with the ability to calculate the likely net cost to them of sending a child to Harvard, and perspectives from financial aid students on life at Harvard.“The commitment to including first-generation, low-income, and historically disadvantaged minority students in the full spectrum of admissions options is a key feature of this new early-action option,” said Harvard College Dean Evelynn Hammonds. “We have made significant gains in recent years in recruiting larger numbers of these students and in supporting them for success once here. I am very pleased that we are able to re-conceive early action, consistent with these goals, and to work with students based on whatever timetable best meets their needs.”“We continue to be concerned about the pressures on students today, including those associated with college admission,” said Harvard College Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid William R. Fitzsimmons. “In all of our work, we will do everything possible to level the playing field in admissions and encourage all students to make thoughtful choices about how they can best contribute to society.”last_img read more

first_imgVCE partnered up with Presidio and Cisco at the Jets House in New York City during Super Bowl week. Jets House is the New York Jets official hospitality venue where season ticket holders, team partners and guests gather to experience all of the week’s excitement. Throughout the five-day experience, current and former Jets players, coaches and cheerleaders participated in meet-and-greet sessions with guests. Each day there were different programming and interactive guest opportunities such as Q&A sessions, cooking demonstrations, and Chalk Talks.In conjunction with the Jets House event, VCE, along with ecosystem partners Cisco and Presidio, hosted two days of executive briefings and client panel discussions that included sessions on IT as a service, mobility and security, and capacity on demand.IT leaders presented to a group of their industry peers across multiple verticals, which sparked an interactive dialog between the audience and the VCE customers. The most common questions were around how these IT leaders were able to shift their day-to-day tasks from infrastructure concerns to delivering business demands.The two sessions provided several unique insights:Tangible benefits of getting the first Vblock SystemOrganizational impacts of Vblock SystemsVelocity towards multiple Vblock SystemsShifting from IaaS to platform as a service (PaaS) to software as a service (SaaS) to IT as a service (ITaaS)Tangible benefits of getting the first Vblock SystemThe CIOs listed VCE’s speedy service delivery as the first benefit to visibly impact their organizations. The word “faster” echoed throughout the discussions. Of course, the speed to value is apparent, but even greater value came from longer-term deployment. With VCE, the CIOs are able to meet the increased expectations and demands from different departments again and again.By assessing the system as a whole, there is less time wasted on isolated concerns of compute, network, storage and management. Indeed, IT leaders were able to shift from infrastructure centric to more workplace centric views. Over time, the leaders realized that a vibrant and stable service catalog, relying on a true converged infrastructure with lifecycle assurance, is the key to unlocking even faster time to value than ever before. In short, standardization on Vblock Systems empowers teams to focus more on what matters – business needs – and less on IT for the sake of IT.Organizational impacts of Vblock SystemsInterestingly, the organizational impact of Vblock Systems takes place over different timelines. If an IT department was radically siloed, then the organizational impact will be greater than a system-oriented environment. This sparks the classic debate among the network team, the compute or virtualization team, the storage team, and even the security and compliance teams. Combining these teams yields greater operational awareness, which is only possible with a system view of how services are delivered. Further, it is a system view that provides assurances to security compliance teams not available in the old silo views.The standardization on Vblock Systems unlocks the capabilities within organizations to expand from only providing management tools to exploring deeper levels of automation and ultimately a complete orchestration alignment to meet business needs. So, while the workshops presented two different journeys of varying silo-oriented history it was apparent that the outcomes aligned to more streamlined operations than the silos ever afforded.Velocity toward multiple Vblock SystemsAs organizations continue to consume services that reside on Vblock Systems, lines of business begin to equate speed and the repeatable outcomes with the “new IT.”  Previously, these lines of business might have attempted to outsource their own IT, and then foist that solution upon internal IT teams to support. Now, in the wake of adopting Vblock Systems, these same application owners seek out the IT teams to understand how they can achieve tenancy goals from development to test to QA to production in a single conversation – all centered around a single IT relationship.For the first time in many organizations, the IT conversation is internal to the private cloud as a viable option, whereas prior views might mandate looking outside to so-called public clouds more often than not. Additionally, many CIOs found that standardizing their organization’s intellectual property on multiple Vblock Systems within their own data centers was more cost-effective than public clouds.Shifting from IaaS to PaaS to SaaS to ITaaSPerhaps the most exciting part of the discussions were centered around shifts to leverage new consumption models and going higher in the value stack for business. This was realized by working closely with Presidio to take advantage of an on-demand capability on Vblock Systems, which allowed customers to quickly expand the infrastructure to meet new business goals.In fact, this moved discussions along from IaaS to presenting platforms to developers (PaaS) as well as managing full stacks for lines of business (SaaS) and handling quick assimilation of mergers and acquisitions to seasonable IT needs (ITaaS). It was clear that Presidio had tapped into a need and delivered a commensurate solution for the IT leader. Finally, VCE’s on demand financial and technology models allow for use of Vblock Systems on an event or seasonal basis as OPEX (rather than CAPEX), which helps enterprises quickly address new business needs.last_img read more

first_img August 15, 2005 Regular News It is important to practice under your real name It is important to practice under your real name Lori S. Holcomb Bar UPL Counsel While it may be true that a rose by any other name is still a rose, an attorney practicing under a name other than as admitted is a rule violation.Rule 1-3.3 of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar requires each member of The Florida Bar to designate an official Bar name and mandates that “the official Bar name of each member of The Florida Bar shall be used in the member’s practice of law.”How is your official Bar name designated? It is the name that you use with the Florida Board of Bar Examiners when applying to become a member of The Florida Bar. How can you find out what your official Bar name is? Look at the certificate you got from the Supreme Court of Florida when you became licensed or at the card you got from The Florida Bar with your Bar number on it. Can’t find those? You can find your records on the Bar’s Web site, floridabar.org. Just click on Find a Lawyer and put in your Bar number. Or you can call the Bar’s Membership Records Department (850-561-5832) and give them your Bar number, and they can tell you how your name is listed with The Florida Bar.What does it mean that you shall practice under that name? Just what is says. If you are licensed as Cynthia R. Jones, you can’t practice as Cynthia C. Jones or Cindy Jones. If you are licensed as Robert Smith-Barnes, you can’t practice as Robert Barnes or Bob Smith-Barnes or Bob Barnes. If you are licensed as Cruella D. Ville, you can’t practice as C. D. Ville. Whatever name you are licensed under must be the name that appears on business cards, letterhead, office doors, pleadings, the telephone book, and any other place your name appears.Why is this a problem? Besides the fact that the rules require it, when your clients or potential clients call for information on you and your name is put in the system, your records will not come up. The caller is then transferred to the Unlicensed Practice of Law Department because you, or your name, appears to be practicing law without a license. This could result in action by The Florida Bar. At the very least, you’ll get a call or letter asking about your status. Not only are you opening yourself up to a possible letter from The Florida Bar, you are missing out on a source for new clients. You are listed on the Bar’s Web site and in the directory edition of the Bar Journal under your record name. If you are practicing under a different name, you decrease the chance that potential clients will be able to find you. So when cousin Bill tells his friend Jim to call Cindy Jones, Jim won’t be able to find you.Okay, you’ve decided after all of these years as practicing as C.D. Ville you want to change your record Bar name to C.D. Ville. How do you change it? Rule 1-3.3 states that the change can only be made “upon request to and approval” of the Supreme Court. How do you do that? According to the Supreme Court’s Web site (www.florida supremecourt.org), you send a letter to the clerk’s office requesting that your name be changed on the roll of attorneys. You should include your old name, your new name, and your Bar number. You should also include a self-addressed stamped envelope for return of the order approving the change. The same procedure applies if you have a change in last name due to marriage or divorce.So, it really boils down to be or not to be, for Bar purposes anyway. I once heard that change is good for the soul. In this case, it’s good for your business as well.last_img read more

first_img continue reading » The most cannabis-friendly Congress in history is back from its August recess, and lawmakers are already making key moves to advance marijuana reform legislation. The immediate focus is on a proposal to let banks serve cannabis companies without fear of being punished by federal regulators—with House leaders announcing that a floor vote is expected by the end of the month.On Monday, the Senate version of the marijuana financial services bill got its 33rd cosponsor—Sen. Tina Smith (D-MN)—meaning that virtually a third of the chamber is now formally signed onto the legislation, counting its main sponsor Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR).Not to be outdone by movement in the House, where the cannabis banking legislation was approved in committee back in March, Senate Banking Committee Chairman announced last week that he plans a vote on the issue in his panel by the end of the year.
