Hospice doubles trading arm Gift Aid income with EPoS software

first_img Surrey-based Woking & Sam Beare Hospice has doubled its trading arm Gift Aid revenue by switching from a manual till system to EPoS software.The hospice implemented Nisyst’s CHARiot Full Scan Mode (FSM) software, which captures 100% of Gift Aid by generating an electronic barcode, in its 16 charity shops and its warehouse site.As a result, the hospice has seen Gift Aid revenue double from its trading arm in less than a year, with data now immediately viewable from head office. The system also means that Gift Aid can still be captured from items that are not sold straightaway.Rosemary Vyse, retail manager at Woking & Sam Beare Hospice, said:“The Gift Aid process is different in the warehouse as some donations to shops are stored in the warehouse because they may be seasonal, so we’re able to store them but still capture donors’ details and barcode the items for Gift Aid, ready for when they are sold.“Implementing change in any organisation can be a challenge. However, with training and support, staff quickly adapted to the new system. CHARiot ensures Gift Aid is captured consistently by all personnel and in all shops by preventing a sale from being completed until the unique bar code has been scanned for each item.”  69 total views,  1 views today Advertisement 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.

Seed Consultants Market Watch Weekly Comment with Gary Wilhelmi 12/28/2012

first_img Seed Consultants Market Watch Weekly Comment with Gary Wilhelmi 12/28/2012 By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 28, 2012 Previous articleUpdated Purdue Extension Corn and Soybean Guide ReleasedNext articleSeed Consultants Market Watch Morning Comment with Gary Wilhelmi 12/28/2012 Hoosier Ag Today SHARE In my forty-nine years in the analysis and explanation business I have never witnessed such a dysfunctional abandonment of public trust as we have had in the last few years. We only skim along the surface of deep seated long term problems, at best, and now we can’t even do that. It is a sad commentary on prospects for those who follow, or our children.The grains dropped below support levels at $7.00 in March corn and $7.75 in March wheat with the next shelves at $6.50 and $7.62. March soybeans have held above $14, but export sales wilted to 87,000 tons. Wheat business was good at 1 MT with Egypt buying 405,000 tons. Corn abysmal once again near 100,000 tons.A major winter storm traversed the southland creating short term logistical troubles, but river levels remain critically low south of St Louis to Memphis. Even if we have heavy snow winter soil moisture will not be fully charged and yields could still be reduced in 2013. It is, of course far too early to make such assumptions, but it must be kept in your memory bank.China is fully engaged in a normal switch to South American soybean supplies and prospects look good in Brazil with Argentina continuing to fight excess rain delayed plantings. China will not completely shut off the US demand switch. The Chinese economy has been troubled, but not so much as too severely impact food demand.The volume of trade is reduced in all markets and that serves to enhance volatility. The CME is facing the ICE buying the NYSE creating a powerful derivative competition. The price of CME stock has fallen 15 % as the NYSE has had a similar advance.Over in the meat isle holiday specials dominate, and 2013 economic concerns cast a long shadow. This week cash cattle started at $127.50 up north which is short of parity. Slaughter levels are holiday interrupted this week and next. Boxed beef has held near $194 on choice and pork cutout has reflected a limited specialized demand. Beef export sales were down 15% last week at 11,000 tons.Our inability to pass a new farm bill, it has never been sent to the house floor and now we face perhaps a $2-3 jump in milk prices and uncertainty regarding farm programs. Where has all the common sense gone? Facebook Twitter Home Market Market Watch Seed Consultants Market Watch Weekly Comment with Gary Wilhelmi 12/28/2012 Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Despite reassuring statements from government officials, journalists continue to be threatened and prosecuted

first_img RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its call for the repeal of article 301 of the criminal code punishing attacks on the Turkish identity, as the country continued to be abuzz with protests and reactions to the 19 January murder of newspaper editor Hrant Dink, whose funeral on 23 January drew 100,000 mourners.The editor of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian weekly Agos, Dink had been convicted under article 301 and was facing another prosecution under the same article at the time of his death. Foreign minister Abdullah Gül has said the article is clearly problematic and that changes need to be made. While supporting his comments, Reporters Without Borders believes the article should be completely repealed.Gül’s comment is not the first. Last November, a European Union commission that is monitoring Turkey’s progress towards joining the EU stressed that: “Article 301 and other provisions of the Turkish penal code that restrict freedom of expression need to be brought in line with the European Convention of Human Rights.” Anticipating the commission’s comments, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had already appealed to civil society to suggest how the article could be reformed.“Despite that, nothing concrete has so far been initiated and for this reason, we would like to stress today that promises are not enough,” Reporters Without Borders said today.A person who has confessed to being one of the instigators of Dink’s murder, Yasin Hayal, uttered threats against Nobel literature laureate Orhan Pamuk when he was brought before an Istanbul court last week. Ogün Samast, the 17-year-old youth who fired the shots that killed Dink, told police when first questioned that he “felt no remorse.” He said Dink had deserved to die for insulting the Turkish peopleNationalism was the driving force behind Dink’s murder and it continues to fuel threats against journalists. Agos contributors requested, and obtained, police protection after getting death threats in an e-mail message signed by the Turkish Brigades for Revenge (TIT). It was a TIT member, Semih Tufan Günalthay, who ordered the 1998 murder of Akin Birdal, Turkey’s leading human rights activist. At least six journalists and writers are currently getting police protection.A 36-year-old ex-soldier yesterday surrendered to the police after threatening to blow up a ferry in northwestern Turkey in protest against the pro-Armenian slogans chanted at Dink’s funeral. The man, who was carrying a very powerful kind of explosive known as C4, unfurled a Turkish flag over the ferry and announced that: “I did it for Turkey.” The daily newspaper Tercuman said on 26 January that those who were not proud of being Turkish should leave the country.Although the repeal of article 301 is now being widely discussed, journalists are still being prosecuted under it. They include Umur Hozatli, who is being prosecuted over two articles published last September in which he criticised a police raid on the premises of Özgür Radio and the leftist weekly Atilim and accused the police of “cooperating with certain judges to illegally imprison people regarded as separatists or terrorists.”Last November, Reporters Without Borders noted that at least 65 people, including many journalists and writers, had been prosecuted under article 301 since its adoption as part of the new criminal code in June 2005.Six people have so far been charged in connection with Dink’s murder. Samast is charged with shooting Dink. Hayal is accused of being one of the instigators. Ahmet Iskender, Ersin Yolcu, Zeynel Abidin Yavuz and Erhan Tucel, are also charged with inciting the murder. Tucel is a student who supports a national group in Trabzon, Samast’s home town.Dink was killed by several shots fired at him outside the Istanbul offices of Agos, for which he wrote columns as well as being the editor. A well-known journalist and one who was respected by his colleagues, Dink had been the target of several prosecutions over his views on the massacre of Armenians under the Ottoman empire. In 2005, he received six-month suspended sentence for “humiliating Turkish identity.” He was prosecuted again in September 2006 over an interview he gave to Reuters in which he referred to the massacres in Anatolia during the First World War as “genocide.” He had been facing a possible three-year prison sentence.

Communication is the vital key

first_img Previous Article Next Article Communication is the vital keyOn 11 Apr 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Effective communication with staff is vital to the success of changemanagement, according to former chief executive of the London Borough ofLambeth Heather Rabbatts.Speaking at the HRD 2000 conference, Rabbatts said her own experiences atthe beleaguered authority had driven home the importance of telling peoplewithin the organisation what was going on.She said it was important to ensure the consistency of the message beingcommunicated.”If you do not align what you are saying to your people in yourorganisation and what you are saying to the public you will come unstuck. Youhave to engage honestly with people about what is going on.”Although she accepted the importance of electronic communication methods,she warned against using it as a replacement for traditional means of sharinginformation in the office.”It does not capture the essence of communication.”In order to keep staff motivated, Rabbatts said it was important toimplement initiatives that put “runs on the board”, in terms ofeasily recognisable successes.In Lambeth she drove forward a scheme to ensure all public lights on localestates were functioning correctly.In addition, she stressed the importance of allowing staff to makedecisions.”Nine times out of 10 it does not matter what decision you make – justmake the decision.”Rabbatts also highlighted maintaining the momentum of change as a keycomponent of change management. Motivation needs to be considered in terms ofhow people are incentivised and rewarded, she said. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
