It covers how to create images that help a charity or social enterprise stand out, show its impact and help inspire action or a response.It covers both images and videos, always with an emphasis on free, quick and easy to use tools that create something that is ‘good enough’. It is more than a straightforward how-to-take-good-photos or how-to-use-your-smartphone-camera-effectively course. Past courses have seen delegates making use of household or office items that were to hand, from sticky notes, through coloured paper, and sweets. Lego minifigs were also on hand, as were fridge magnet letters, chocolate finger biscuits and Love Heart sweets!The online version is also appropriate for small businesses, many of whom now need to do their best to stand out on their digital channels.It’s also the first time that the course has been available to fundraisers outside the UK.The first course takes place on 19 and 26 May, and booking is open.

Finsbury looks to claw back decline in cake sales

first_imgFinsbury Food Group is banking on a return to growth for premium cakes as it tries to bounce back from a tough financial year in which sales fell for the first time in the company’s history.The group’s cake operation, which accounts for 74% of revenue and includes Memory Lane and Lightbody, saw sales plummet by 9.7% in the 52 weeks to 3 July, due to an overall decline in the cake market and a decision to exit low-margin business.The £1.5bn cake market declined by 2.6% over the period, but Finsbury was hit much harder because of its focus on premium and healthy cakes segments that suffered disproportionately as retailers launched value ranges and heavy discounting during the recession. However, CEO John Duffy told British Baker that he was optimistic sales of premium cakes would pick up. “At some point in this financial year, we will see a step-change in the availability of premium ranges in the grocers. We’re out of recession and they [the supermarkets] have to respond to that.”Total group revenue at Finsbury for the 52 weeks to 3 July 2010 was £168.3m, down 5.9% year-on-year, although the firm increased profits before tax by 7% to £5.4m and reduced net bank debt by 11% to £36.5m. The company was helped by internal efficiencies, including restructuring of distribution and shift patterns, and the strong performance of its bread and gluten-free arm, which posted sales growth of 14% to £43.7m.Duffy added: “Success for this business depends on trading through the present period, paying off a proportion of our debt, building a financial position that is less leveraged and returning to growth in an expan-ding marketplace.”last_img read more

SMC hosts mom’s weekend

first_imgSaint Mary’s Junior Mom’s Weekend is aimed to bring mothers and daughters together for a weekend of fun, junior class president Meghan Helmle said. “It’s definitely just a time to relax,” Helmle said.Mothers will visit campus today, Saturday and Sunday to spend quality time with their daughters.“Its also good to bond with our moms,” junior class treasurer Katie Brown said. Though the weekend was originally intended for just mothers and daughters, the Junior Class Board decided to open the event to all female relatives, but Brown said most of the relatives that will visit are mothers. More than 250 mothers and relatives are expected to attend, she said.“Our theme for the weekend is that daughters and mothers are friends,” Helmle said. “We’re definitely pushing and encouraging moms and daughters to form a friendship and making it a lasting relationship.”The moms are scheduled to arrive on campus and register between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. today.  Registration will be held in the Gillespie Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn, where wine and cheese will be served from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.In addition to the wine and cheese, a silent auction will begin at 5 p.m. and continue until 7:45 p.m., when the winners will be announced. “We are doing a silent auction, and we had over 45 people donate baskets,” Helmle said.Events will continue Saturday, beginning with a Mary Kay Skin Care party in the Student Center Lounge from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A jewelry sale will also be held during the weekend with a special piece of jewelry designed just for Junior Mom’s Weekend. The sale will be held in the Student Center Atrium from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.Brown said many of the events will be held on campus to show off the College.“We wanted to keep it on campus, or as close to campus as possible, so the events, our two big events, are held at the Hilton,” Helmle said. “We really wanted to showcase our campus and show how nice our school really is.”Students and moms will have the chance to participate in a tie-dye event from 10 a.m. to noon in Conference Room C in the Student Center and a scavenger hunt, which takes place around campus. Wine glass decorating will also be available from noon to 2 p.m. in Earley Conference Room E in the Student Center.Moms and daughters can also participate in the game, “How Well Do You Know Your Belle.” Afternoon tea will be held in Haggar Parlor. The day will end with a showing of “A League of Their Own” with pizza and pop in Vander Vennet at 8 p.m.On Sunday, mothers and daughters will eat brunch together from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and Saint Mary’s President Carol Ann Mooney speak at 10:15 a.m. Brunch will be held in the Ballroom at the Gillespie Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn.The weekend will conclude with Mass at the Church of Loretto at 11:15 a.m.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s employee fired, arrested for voyeurism on campus

first_img“Home feels a little less like home today,” junior Tess Siver said Tuesday after the report of voyeuristic privacy violation on the Saint Mary’s campus.A maintenance employee of the College was terminated from his position Tuesday after a co-worker reported suspicious behavior in a bathroom on the fourth floor of Le Mans Hall Monday afternoon, according to an email from College President Carol Ann Mooney.A report from WNDU identified 73-year-old David Summerfield as the employee.Courtesy of SBPD Director of media relations Gwen O’Brien said the initial report noted that the employee may have observed students in the bathroom. After the report, he was immediately confronted by superiors and admitted to the allegation, she said.Within two hours of the initial report, he was suspended without pay and escorted off campus. Since then, his employment has been terminated, O’Brien said.On Monday evening, College officials notified the St. Joseph County Special Victims Unit, who began an immediate police investigation, O’Brien said. The investigation led to Summerfield’s arrest Tuesday morning for voyeurism.Mooney notified students, parents, faculty and staff of the situation in an email sent Tuesday afternoon. In the email, Mooney apologized for the incident and praised the employee who came forward with the initial report.“The safety, privacy and security of our students are our primary concerns,” Mooney said. “This type of behavior is repugnant, and Saint Mary’s College will not tolerate it.“As soon as this was reported to us, we acted swiftly to remove the person from campus. We have taken measures that prevent anyone else from being able to spy into restrooms. In addition, we are evaluating all space on campus to ensure privacy.”Mooney invited students, faculty and staff to an assembly in O’Laughlin Auditorium on Tuesday afternoon to address concerns. The assembly was not open to the public.O’Brien said students who need services or support in dealing with this incident can access counseling through Women’s Health and Campus Ministry. In addition, the Residence Life staff is on hand to provide assistance, she said.Siver, a resident of the fourth floor of Le Mans Hall, said she felt simultaneously shocked and violated.“It breaks my heart that mine and my neighbors’ memories of our time in Le Mans will be tainted, but as always, the SMC community will pull together and move past this,” she said.Siver said she feels that Saint Mary’s has been as forthcoming and open with students about the incident as possible.“I hope they continue to be open with students throughout the investigation, particularly those students who live in areas of Le Mans that have been most affected,” she said.Junior Kelley Wright, another fourth floor resident, agreed with Siver, extending her personal thanks to Mooney for her open and honest response to the situation during the college-wide forum.“I think the immediate forum that was held today was very important for everyone, not just the residents of 4th floor Le Mans,” Wright said.Wright said she hopes the College responds to the situation in a way that makes students feel safer and restores a sense of privacy.“I am anxiously awaiting what the College is going to do to ensure that this doesn’t happen again,” she said.Tags: Arrest, SMC employee, spyinglast_img read more

Wither the coin of the realm

first_img continue reading » The mighty U.S. Dollar, the coin of the realm (where the “realm” is the entire world), appears shaky for the first time in a long time. Replacements like the Euro, Yen, or crypto are periodically offered up (forget the Chinese Yuan, as it is not even a freely-floating, deliverable currency). At the end of the day, just about anything vital and strategic that a nation needs trades in U.S. Dollars. The USD, as measured by The Federal Reserve Trade Weighted Nominal Broad Dollar Index, has swooned 7.2% since March 23rd of this year. During that same time, gold has hit new all-time highs and has increased 25%.Surely, we have had U.S. Dollar weakness during the period of time between the financial crisis and now, but this time it just feels different. For the first time, at least a decent chunk of investors (foreign and domestic) are starting to feel that perhaps we don’t have our “stuff” together as well as Europe, Japan, and China. Many feel that our response to the COVID-19 virus has put us on our back foot in relation to the rest of the developed economies of the world. The U.S. leads the world in cases and deaths. Moreover, the plan to deal with the virus is fragmented by state, as opposed to a executing a national strategy. Our reopening of the economy and schools has been very disappointing and seems to be leading us back to the beginning more than to the end—or even the middle—of this disaster.Additionally, there are our ballooning deficits and Treasury borrowings. We have become very comfortable in the feeling that, when all the dust settles, capital goes where it is most stable. Since Europe showed from 2008 onward that the fabric of the Union can fall to pieces in a crisis (or a Brexit!), there are only two flavors: Japanese Yen and U.S. Dollars. Since the financial crisis, the U.S. has had a better economic run than Japan, and the risk-free assets aren’t at negative yields (except for some slight blips in T-Bills). Since March 23rd, the Yen has appreciated 5% versus the USD. The Fed has already made it very plain that they are going to do whatever it takes to support the financial markets and the economy as best they can. They have and will continue to buy enormous amounts of the nation’s debt. However, we believe they would prefer not to buy it all! International demand is still necessary.
