He had failed the fitness test after being called up to the national team for England series. The Tamil Nadu spinner was included in the team that will be led by Shikhar Dhawan for a limited-overs series in Sri Lanka.The spinner who has impressed with his fine performances in the IPL was called up for the T20I series against Australia in October 2020. But he was ruled out with an injury. He got a chance again in March when he was given a call-up for the limited-overs series against England at home but he failed the fitness test twice.

I can control things till the ball leaves my hand. If the process is right, I don’t bother even if I go for runs,” Varun Chakravarthy said.In Bengaluru, he has also met Shikhar Dhawan, the captain of the Sri Lanka tour and NCA director Rahul Dravid, who will be the coach for the tour and is looking forward to playing under them.“He told me, ‘You have the ability.

When Frank Gehry and his wife bought an existing house in Santa Monica, California, the neighbors did not have the slightest idea that the corner residence would soon be transformed into a symbol of deconstructivism. Gehry, however, knew something had to be done to the house before he moved in. His solution was a bold one in the 1970’s that involved the “balance of fragment and whole, raw and refined, new and old” and would strike up controversy.Save this picture!© Flickr – User: Ken McCownRecommended ProductsDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82DoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineGehry actually did keep the existing house almost completely in tact, but not in a conventional manner. The Dutch colonnial home was left in tact and the new house was built around it. Holes were made, walls were stripped, torn down and put up, and the old quiet house became a loud shriek of contemporary style among the neighboring mansions–literally. Neighbors hated it, but that did not change the fact that the house was a statement of art entwined with architecture.Save this picture!via netropolitan.orgGehry’s design wrapped around three sides of the old house on the ground floor, extending the house towards the street and leaving the exterior of the existing home almost untouched. The interior went through a considerable amount of changes on both if its two levels. In some places it was stripped to reveal the framing, exposing the joists and wood studs. It was repaired according to the addition, showing both old and new elements. This is especially evident when walking through the rooms of the house and passing by both new doors placed by Gehry and older ones originally in the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of storiesofhouses.comThe entrance is barely discernible amidst the jutting angles of the exterior, which Gehry created from wood, glass, aluminum, and chain-link fencing. The apex of the old house peeks out from within this mix of materials, giving the impression that the house is consistently under construction. Save this picture!© Liao YushengIn 1991 due to the Gehry family’s growth which involved two boys, the house had to be expanded. Even though Gehry tried to maintain the same style of the house, allowing the original design to determine that of the addition, the house went through significant changes. The residence became much more “finished” which in turn stirred up the angry voices of those who felt strongly about the original raw deconstructivist aesthetics. Nonetheless the Gehry House is still a classic among California’s architectural works.Save this picture!Axonometric”I loved the idea of leaving the house intact… I came up with the idea of building the new house around it. We were told there were ghosts in the house… I decided they were ghosts of Cubism. The windows… I wanted to make them look like they were crawling out of this thing. At night, because this glass is tipped it mirrors the light in… So when you’re sitting at this table you see all these cars going by, you see the moon in the wrong place… the moon is over there but it reflects here… and you think it’s up there and you don’t know where the hell you are…” – Frank GehrySave this picture!© Liao YushengProject gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop / Junya IshigamiArticles”Felicity: Change your city, change your life” International CompetitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/67321/gehry-residence-frank-gehry Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

Income growth falters for top 100 charities as pressures bite, report shows

first_img Melanie May | 16 March 2018 | News 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Tagged with: Finance Research / statistics The fundraising income of the top 100 fundraising charities reached £5.6bn last year: the highest amount for five years but the lowest annual growth rate.According to the latest Charity Financials Top 100 Fundraisers Spotlight report, the top 100 generated £9.1bn income overall in 2016-17. This was a real-terms growth margin of 0.7% on the previous year, with the maintenance of income due to a small real growth in fundraising income of 1%.Nine of the top 10 charities consolidated their positions as leaders in fundraising in the 2016-17 financial year. Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation retained their rankings of first and second, while Sightsavers International took third place, up from sixth. According to the report, the increase in the income of Sightsavers International was principally related to an in-kind gift of drugs valued at £39 million to treat trachoma in Sudan from the International Trachoma Initiative. Its cash donations also rose, including from legacies and corporates. However, a number of charities saw little overall increase, including Marie Curie Cancer Care and Cancer Research UK.The fastest growing charities are Alzheimer’s Society (23rd), which saw income growth in 2016/17 due to an increase in donations including legacies of £1.6 million; Tearfund (34th), which saw its donations increase by £8 million in 2015/16, largely as a result of its toilet-twinning appeal, and its emergency appeals; The International Bible Students Association; The Woodland Trust; and Crisis.Largest income streamsOverall, legacies were the second largest income stream after donations, at 15.6% of the total income of the top 100 fundraising charities, and following voluntary donations, which continue to provide the largest share of fundraised income at 52%. Statutory funding fell by 1.7% in the last year, but still accounted for £1.04bn of overall income, while income from charitable activity fell by 2% compared to 2015-16 figures, reaching £1.1bn. This is an almost flat growth trend in combined income from statutory sources and charitable activities and a fall back to the level of 2011/12 in their combined real value in 2016/17.Tough times aheadAccording to Charity Financials, a review of the longer-term trends in charities’ income reveals the sector moving into a period of economic constraint. With total income to the top 100 growing by just £63 million (0.7%) between 2015/16 and 2016/17, the sector almost returned to the negative position it held when UK GDP experienced an economic dip between 2011 and 2012. Its figures show that growth rates had been picking up well from that point, and staying at over 4% until 2016/17, which saw a dramatic drop.The report concludes that there are many positive indicators in the report but overall, it says: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis29center_img Income growth falters for top 100 charities as pressures bite, report shows “The results reinforce the evidence of last year that pressures in the funding environment are having a significant effect on charity growth, at a point where the charity sector is being expected to do more to pick up social needs which the government cannot fully support.”“With UK economic growth now predicted to slow down over the medium-term, the uncertainties of Brexit and the recent devastating allegations of poor practice in the sector receiving very high profile media attention, the sector may struggle to achieve any measurable growth over the next few years. The reality is that charities may have to work even harder to maintain their financial position and convince donors that they are a priority.”The report was written by Professor Cathy Pharoah at the Centre for Giving and Philanthropy at the Cass Business School and sponsored by M&G Investments.  219 total views,  1 views today  220 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis29last_img read more

Almost half of charity leaders considering their futures due to pressure

first_imgThe latest study from Ecclesiastical questioned 450 charity leaders and also found that two thirds (66%) of charity leaders were concerned about the effect that staff burnout could have on their charity – in particular not being able to provide services to users (36%) who have become dependent on the support they offer. Four out of five respondents (81%) said it had already become more difficult to meet the needs of service users due to the pandemic. Advertisement According to Ecclesiastical’s research, two in five charities (44%) had experienced an increase in colleague mental health concerns since the start of 2021. Cases of anxiety (71%), stress (70%), depression (66%) all rose in that time – while a quarter said they had seen an increase in both self-harm (25%) and suicidal feelings (27%),  Tagged with: mental health Research / statistics Challenges at home such as child care or home schooling (33%), concerns about the health of family or friends (30%) and fatigue of home working (30%) were all cited as the main concerns for colleagues as the effects of the pandemic impacted on their mental wellbeing.

Defend the freedom of the press! Break the silence about Iraq!

first_imgBy Swedish Iraq Solidarity AssociationThe following is an appeal by the Swedish Iraq Solidarity Association on occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, May 3.Eighteen years have passed since Iraq was invaded and occupied in 2003 by the United States, supported mainly by Britain. The coverage by Western media — not least the Swedish media — of developments in the country has been extremely deficient and often directly misleading.Stockholm, Sweden, May 3.  Credit: Sigyn MederThe Australian journalist Julian Assange, who through WikiLeaks revealed to the world the war crimes of the invading forces, is being held without trial in a British high-security prison under poor sanitation and in total isolation, which equals mental torture. His case is not only a mockery of the rule of law but also an attack on international press freedom, intended as a warning to the media worldwide. Whoever reveals war crimes will be severely punished; whoever commits them goes free.Iraq, which before the invasion was a rich and successful country with a high standard of living for the population, has been destroyed by the invasion. Over one and a half million people have been killed, even more injured or displaced from their homes or subjected to arbitrary violence and abuse.Large cities such as Mosul and Fallujah have been repeatedly subjected to terror bombing and mass destruction. The country’s infrastructure, including the water and electricity supply and sewage treatment plants, has been smashed to pieces. Extensive corruption prevents reconstruction. Politically, the United States has imposed on Iraq a sectarian system to divide its people.Destruction of Iraq environmentThe weapons used by the United States have caused lasting damage to the environment and to its people. Depleted uranium, white phosphorus and other chemical toxins were used in its warfare.Many children are still [being] born severely malformed due to radioactivity and other environmental degradation. President Joe Biden recently made a big deal out of the fact that the United States is now joining the Paris Agreement. He made no mention of the [U.S.] American war machine’s deliberate environmental destruction and poisoning, not only in Iraq.Officially, the U.S. role today is said to be to fight terrorism, although terrorism was a direct creation of the U.S. war, as even President Barack Obama noted. In reality the role of the United States includes massive bombings of civilians, drone strikes on Iraqi territory, such as the one that resulted in the assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani on Jan. 3, 2020, and the deployment of special forces, contract staff and intelligence agents.There is strong pressure for U.S. troops to leave Iraq. Major demonstrations call for national independence. On Oct. 1, 2019, a series of extensive demonstrations began, the so-called October Uprising. More than 700 protesters have been killed and thousands injured. No one has been held responsible for these abuses. Media reporting has been almost nonexistent.The Pentagon plans to stayThe Iraqi parliament has called on the United States to withdraw from the country, and talks have been held with the government on the withdrawal of U.S. military units. But the commander of the U.S. Central Command, Kenneth McKenzie, says: “I do not see us completely withdrawing from Iraq in the future.”The U.S. military is clinging to Iraq, but with a less conspicuous role, mainly as “advisers” and for military training and exercise. Combat units are transferred to Kuwait, Jordan or other areas, from where they can intervene again when they deem it appropriate.At the same time, the U.S.-led military alliance NATO is increasing its strength in Iraq from 400 troops to 4,000. Formally, that force is currently under Danish command (formerly Canadian, next year Italian), but ultimately control lies with the United States. In addition, the United States finances private companies, which provide mercenaries.For the United States, Iraq is a base for attacks on Syria and the encirclement of Iran; [Iraq is] a pawn in the game for control of the oil-rich and strategically important Gulf region and ultimately in the pursuit of U.S. domination over the entire Eurasian continent.Since 2015, the Swedish military has been participating in the U.S.-led coalition Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) in Iraq, which lacks a mandate from the United Nations. Sweden has no national interests to defend in the region and contributes to violations of international law as the coalition carries out attacks in Syria. Sweden should not contribute to the occupying power’s continued abuses against Iraq and its neighbors.[Swedish] Foreign Minister Ann Linde and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have still not answered satisfactorily the questions about Sweden’s treatment of Julian Assange that Nils Melzer, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Torture, and editor Arne Ruth asked more than a year ago.The Iraq Solidarity Association calls on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to answer these questions and act for the immediate release of Julian Assange. The war criminals should be punished, not those who exposed the crimes.The Association calls on the media to break the silence about the illegal abuses against Julian Assange and to stop the smearing of him, which contributes to obscuring this judicial scandal. Defend freedom of the press in the world!The Association demands an end to Sweden’s participation in the war and to all foreign interference in Iraq! The Iraqi people must be allowed to decide in their own country.

He said that this was much higher than most European countries.Almost one third of the Irish LGBT community had been physically or sexually assaulted in the last five years.“We have to address the issue. Homophobic crime is a serious problem in this country, a hidden problem in many respects”, he said.Attitudes to the rights of gay and lesbians is changing according to Mr Long who warned that societal acceptance must be evident in State bodies.“The picture is mixed as there has been progress in recent times, but it needs to be reflected in all our agencies.”Addressing the gardai, Mr Long insisted that in “most modern police force” regular training takes place and claimed this was not the case in Ireland.“There is a general scattering of good individuals but there has to be an equality culture at an institutional level,” he added.After the presentation, Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan insisted that Limerick gardaí had received a lot of training and the force was very much “to the fore in equality right issues”.There was one Garda Sergeant liasion officer and seven other members trained in this area.
