Under the radical plans, vice-chancellors would be asked to pay a management fee to profit-making private firms, who would run the university on a day-to-day basis for a period of ten years or more. The private contractor would then be tasked with nursing the institution back to financial health, likely by ditching unpopular or unprofitable courses and slashing costs. Traditionally, the government has stepped in to prop up cash-strapped institutions or negotiated mergers with stronger rivals. But a double-whammy of huge cuts to teaching grants and higher tuition fees of up to £9,000 will put renewed pressure on some weaker universities. The idea is to be included in a White Paper to be published by universities minister David Willetts, who said private sector management was “one possible way in which a failing institution could be turned round”. BPP, the private for-profit firm that was granted university college status last year, has said it is interested in running universities and is understood to be in talks with several struggling establishments. A government source told City A.M. that private providers would also be more likely to slash fees to compete with other universities.

Charity Commission seeks charities’ responses over Fruitful losses

He had paid back £125,000 of this and said he would repay the rest from profits from the other companies in the Fruitful group. This, however, became most unlikely when Fruitful Fundraising (GB) Limited, Fruitful Fundraising (HR) Limited and Fruitful Fundraising (Workplace) Limited were placed in administration last week.According to the Daily Telegraph, charities which have lost money as a result include “The Children’s Society, who paid £164,353 in advance for fund-raising services; Scope, who lost £25,610; the British Red Cross who lost £20,000 and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, who lost £30,000.” Advertisementcenter_img The Charity Commission is reported to have intervened to ask how the charities could have been so exposed to such losses.The Telegraph notes that Chris Coleridge has changed his surname twice, from Manke to Cunningham and then again to Coleridge. Coleridge explained that he was tired of people sniggering at it so he had adopted his then wife’s surname, and then changed it again after their divorce.Read “Charity watchdog intervenes over £800,000 losses” by David Millward at The Daily Telegraph.

EDITORIAL: En una grave crisis económica, lecciones de los más oprimidos

first_imgEstados Unidos se encuentra en una crisis económica histórica y aplastante, acelerada por la pandemia de COVID-19. Si bien la Oficina de Estadísticas Laborales informó el 21 de mayo que la tasa oficial de desempleo era del 14,7 por ciento, ese mismo día la revista Fortune, una voz de la clase capitalista, dijo que la tasa de desempleo real de los EE. UU. ahora era del 22,4 por ciento.Esta es la tasa de desempleo más alta de EE.UU. desde la Gran Depresión de la década de 1930. Hasta el 21 de mayo, 38,6 millones de personas habían solicitado el desempleo, más que la población combinada de 21 estados. Una cuarta parte de los trabajadores en Hawai, Michigan y Nevada están sin trabajo. ( estas estadísticas no comienzan a tener en cuenta un estimado de 2 millones de trabajadores encarcelados, junto con los trabajadores migrantes indocumentados.Los capitalistas usan estos números para evaluar el daño económico a su clase y hacer planes para ahorrar sus ganancias.Los comunistas miran estos números y saben que somos nosotros y nuestra familia, amigos y compañeros de trabajo esperando en las líneas de automóviles de seis millas de largo por alimentos, tratando de obtener atención médica de emergencia de un médico cuando se perdió el seguro médico con el trabajo, tratando de mantener de ser desalojado porque no hay dinero para pagar el alquiler.Los comunistas miran las estadísticas y conocen los hechos ocultos: la mayoría de las personas que pierden empleos ya son trabajadores de bajos salarios, porque casi la mitad de los trabajadores de EE.UU. entre 18 y 64 están empleados en trabajos de pobreza de bajos salarios y pagan salarios anuales medios de solo $18.000. ( trabajadores de bajos salarios que están oprimidos a nivel nacional (indígenas, negros, latinos, isleños de Asia y el Pacífico) siempre reciben salarios aún más bajos y de nivel de pobreza que los blancos pobres, algunos grupos hasta dos veces menos. ( racismo vuelve a levantar su fea cabeza en el hecho de que un tercio de todos los musulmanes de EE.UU. viven en la línea de pobreza o por debajo de ella; la mayoría de los musulmanes de EE.UU. son negros, latinos o asiáticos. ( los 23 millones de trabajadores con salarios bajos, dos tercios son mujeres. Si se mantuvieran las estadísticas para las personas no conformes con el género, un número aún mayor estaría en la categoría de “mujeres de bajos salarios y trabajadoras oprimidas por el género”. Por lo general, a las mujeres se les paga un 15 por ciento menos que a los trabajadores varones blancos, con una mayor brecha para las mujeres de color. (ún el BLS, en 2019 solo el 19,3 por ciento de las personas con discapacidad incluso estaban empleadas.Los comunistas observan estos hechos y saben quién está sufriendo, y nosotros observamos a nuestra familia, amigos y compañeros de trabajo y también vemos quién se está organizando militantemente.Porque en todo Estados Unidos los trabajadores de bajos salarios y oprimidos están aumentando, desde trabajadores de saneamiento hasta trabajadores de salones de salud, desde enfermeras hasta trabajadores de plantas empacadoras de carne. Están siende liderados por personas de color, mujeres, personas LGBTQ2+ y personas con discapacidades, todos se alzan para luchar por sus vidas.Luchar por sus vidas no es una metáfora, sino una verdad literal, ya que los trabajadores “esenciales” de bajos salarios que todavía están en el trabajo se enfrentan cara a cara con sus jefes en un intento de obtener equipos de protección personal que salven vidas y otras garantías de salud.Para los trabajadores sin empleo, la “ayuda” económica de los Estados Unidos o los gobiernos estatales es completamente inadecuada, si no se retiene deliberadamente. Hasta el 15 de mayo, según One Fair Wage, el 44 por ciento de las personas que solicitaron el desempleo han sido denegadas o aún esperan ser aprobadas.Muchos millones de trabajadores son ahora aquellos que no tienen “nada que perder excepto sus cadenas”, como dice el Manifiesto Comunista.Estas son las “cadenas” de la esclavitud asalariada.Lecciones de luchas pasadasLo más importante ahora es recordar las lecciones de lucha que nos han dado quienes lucharon durante siglos contra el colonialismo, la esclavitud y el capitalismo de los Estados Unidos.Lo primero y más importante es la solidaridad, la necesidad de forjar lazos de simpatía, unidad y fuerza, para luchar en las batallas de cada uno como si cada una fuera nuestra.La lucha contra la supremacía blanca es el núcleo de esta solidaridad, como siempre lo ha sido, ya que la clase dominante capitalista vuelve a reunir a todas sus fuerzas oficiales y vigilantes de neofascismo para tratar de convertir a los trabajadores blancos en contra de las nacionalidades oprimidas y otras agrupaciones oprimidas.La otra lección clave que nos dieron los combatientes antes que nosotros es apuntar y soñar para el mundo que queremos, no el trato que ofrecen nuestros opresores. Ahora es el momento de avanzar en las demandas que nos acercan al mundo que soñamos.Decimos: ¡La comida es un derecho! ¡Un trabajo es un derecho! ¡Un salario y/o un ingreso garantizado más que vivir son derechos! ¡La atención médica es un derecho! ¡Liberarse del racismo y de todas las formas de opresión son derechos! ¡La libertad del encarcelamiento, ya sea en las cárceles o centros de detención, y de la deportación, es un derecho!Y en nuestro mundo, estos derechos son para todas las personas, ya sea en la “fuerza laboral” oficial o no.Todos los días durante esta crisis económica pandémica, los más oprimidos lideran la lucha, y todos los días nos están enseñando nuevamente una antigua lección por el luchador por la libertad negra Frederick Douglass: “Sin lucha, no hay progreso”.Avancemos para enfrentar ese desafío, donde sea que estemos. Solidaridad para siempre.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU sophomore remembered for her joy

first_imgClayton Youngman Twitter Facebook The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years New dean selected for honors college Facebook ReddIt printTaylor Helland chose joy.Taylor, a sophomore at TCU, died last weekend. She had been receiving treatment for Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma, a rare form of colon cancer.“She was always finding joy,” said Bob Helland, Taylor’s father. “Even when she was in really massive pain and had really big problems.”Her family held a celebration for Taylor on Friday at First Mansfield Methodist Church in Mansfield.Prepared for the worstMany things brought Taylor joy. Butterflies. Pizza Snob. Ed Sheeran.Taylor was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, when she was 14. She underwent chemotherapy and a dramatic surgery in Houston. Seven months later, the cancer returned.“She went into the emergency room for abdominal pain,” Bob Helland said. “They said there were two huge masses.“We got ready for her to die then.”But 12 rounds of chemotherapy and another invasive surgery bought Taylor some time. Doctors determined the cancer was contained in her ovaries. They removed them.Bob Helland recalled doctors telling the family “we think we got it all.”Before she started TCU, doctors found a mass in the back of Taylor’s abdomen. She underwent chemotherapy her entire first year of school. She would get treatment on Sundays and get up for classes on Mondays, Bob Helland said.When TCU 360 chronicled Taylor’s story in 2014, she said she understood how grim her outlook was.“I was at a point in my life where I was talking to my pastor about what heaven was going to be like, and I kind of just accepted that,” Taylor said in 2014.Chemo didn’t work this time.Her condition worsened, and Taylor took a leave of absence from TCU last fall. She spent a month in the hospital.“When she was in the hospital, she said ‘I just want to go home,” Bob Helland said. “When we got home, we asked her, ‘What do you want now?’ ”“She said, ‘I just want y’all to be happy.”Taylor died on the morning of Feb. 20. She was buried on Monday.Inspiring othersTaylor’s motto was “Choose joy.”Throughout her treatment, Taylor wanted to make an impact on others, Bob Helland said. She spoke at various charity events and fundraisers for pediatric cancer. Her first speaker appearance came at a press conference for the American Cancer Society.“We had been inside the story so much,” Bob Helland said. “That was the first time we got to step back and be part of the story from the outside.”Taylor and her family got involved with multiple causes, including Be+ Foundation, the Michael P. Brown Colon Cancer Foundation, and the Fabulous Faith Foundation. The organizations helped the family cover various expenses.“She just decided real early in her treatments and in her journey that she wanted to try and do something positive rather than just hide and cry and be upset,” Bob Helland said. “She said [she wanted] to try and prevent…another 14-year-old girl from having to go through this.”Her family kept a blog detailing Taylor’s journey. The site has racked up almost 500,000 visits since her diagnosis.“We knew that she had inspired a lot of people and touched a lot of people, but we didn’t really realize it until last Friday when we put on Caring Bridge that the hospital was thinking it was only a matter of days,” Bob Helland said.Taylor, who was a strategic communication major, was a member of the Chi Omega sorority. The Helland family has received an outpouring of support from members of the sorority across the country, Bob Helland said. Members of the sorority’s chapter of TCU held a memorial service for Taylor on Sunday.“The Chi Omegas have just been a blessing to us,” Bob Helland said.But it’s not just Chi Omega. Hundreds of social media users have expressed their condolences and support for the family. A GoFundMe page for the family has raised more than $38,000 in three days“I never really asked for money for us because I didn’t want to make this into a money thing,” Bob Helland said. “I always asked people to donate to other places.”Friday’s celebration was simple.“We’re going to talk about joy,” Bob Helland said.

Shannon airport takes global award

first_imgTwitter SHANNON airport has taken another major step forward having  won a major award at a leading aviation event in Chicago.The prestigious award sees the airport, which only gained its independence in January of last year, go one step further than last year when it was runner-up in the same category.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The World Routes Awards 2014 were presented late on Monday night at a spectacular event at the Field of Museum of Natural History.  The awards are for excellence in marketing by airports globally and are divided into just four categories, based on airport size.  The Awards ceremony was attended by 3,000 delegates, representing 300 airlines, 800 airports and 200 tourism authorities.The event doubled as the Chicago Network Evening and was one of the high points of the three-day annual World Routes gathering of aviation organisations from across the globe.  The three-day event brings together the largest range of airlines, airports, tourism authorities, civil aviation authorities and more from all corners of the world.

It sends a clear message to them that they are very much on the right track and we continue to remain there.  Also, winning this award is worldwide promotion that we simply could not buy and in front of the key decision makers for airlines across the world.” Facebook Previous articleOpening night: The Royal Picture Show festivalNext articleProspect of new 30-bed unit to alleviate pressure on Limerick A&E Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

Some critics even wonder whether the Bureau as it stands now will be around to celebrate next year.From the Bureau’s initiation, the stated purpose of the CFPB has been protecting consumers in the financial marketplace. But earlier this year, Congress proposed changes for how the Bureau is funded, moving for annual appropriations, as well as changes for the CFPB leadership, calling for a bipartisan commission instead of a single director. As the CFPB begins a new year, plans for progression are the mission of the Bureau. They state that will continue to work on protecting consumers in the financial marketplace and empowering them to make informed financial decisions.Freddie Mac announced the pricing of its third Freddie Mac Whole Loan Securities, which totaled to roughly $348 million of guaranteed senior and non-guaranteed subordinate actual loss securities.

The Week Ahead: Measuring Delinquencies and Foreclosures

first_img About Author: Seth Welborn October 4, 2019 1,328 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post On Tuesday, CoreLogic will release its latest Loan Performance Insight Report. According to CoreLogic’s previous report, for June 2019, the 30 days or more delinquency rate was 4%, a 0.3% year-over-year decline from June 2018’s rate of 4.3%.”A strong economy and eight-plus years of home price growth have made mortgage foreclosure an infrequent event,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “This backdrop will help the mortgage market limit delinquencies in most of the country whenever a downturn should start.”Despite the record low delinquency rates, several states and metropolitan areas posted small annual increases in June. The highest gains were in Vermont (+0.7%), New Hampshire (+0.3%), Nebraska (+0.2%) and Minnesota (0.2%), while the other four states, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin and Connecticut, experienced a nominal gain of just 0.1%.”While the nation continues to post near-record-low mortgage delinquency rates, we are seeing signs of emerging stress in some states,” said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. “We saw rates jump in states such as Vermont, New Hampshire, Nebraska and Minnesota that weren’t tied to a natural disaster.”Additionally, the foreclosure inventory rate was 0.4% in June 2019, down 0.1% from June 2018, while serious delinquency rates declined in every state except Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and Virginia, which stayed the same.By CBSA, there were 20 metropolitan areas where the serious delinquency rate increased, and 48 metropolitan areas where the serious delinquency rate remained the same. All the remaining metropolitan areas saw the serious delinquency rate decrease.The share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30-days past due was 1.1% in June 2019, up from 0.9% in June 2018. By comparison, in January 2007, just before the start of the financial crisis, the current-to-30-day transition rate was 1.2% and peaked in November 2008 at 2%.Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead: Black Knight Mortgage Monitor (October 7) Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index (October 7) Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
