whatsapp Share International trade faces threat from protectionism whatsapp GLOBALISATION is at risk from increasing political intervention provoked by the global recession, a senior global economist said yesterday.“The forces of protectionism are probably enough to halt the recent acceleration of global trade,” said UBS’s chief worldwide economist, Paul Donovan.Global trade soared from a 12.5 per cent share of GDP in 1987 to a 24 per cent in 2007. “But 2007 may well mark the peak of globalisation,” Donovan warned, claiming that trade has dropped as a percentage of GDP for the first time since the 1930s. In 2009, world trade fell by 12 per cent, UBS said.“Since pledging there would be no return to 1930s policy, G20 governments have introduced an average of one new trade barrier every day,” Donovan said.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Up for the cup: McBurney (left) celebrates Ireland’s U20 World Cup semi-final win. (Photo: Inpho) Date of birth 5 September 1996. Country Ireland RW verdict: One of the stars for Ireland U20 last season, the 6ft-tall McBurney is aiming to bulk up from his current 15st 10lb so he can transfer his talents to Ulster’s Guinness Pro12 team. A young talent to look out for.First published in the December 2016 edition of Rugby World magazine. TAGS: Ulster What was the U20 World Cup like?Getting to the final was great but it was disappointing to lose. If you had told us when we were 17 points behind against Wales that we were going to get to the final we would have taken it with both hands! That fightback against Wales (to win 26-25) and beating New Zealand is something I will never forget.What are your aims this season?Mainly to put on a bit of size. I’m playing for Ballymena in the All-Ireland League but I need more muscle mass for the pro game. How did you get into rugby?My uncle Maurice McBurney was the only one of my family that played, so my interest came through him. I joined Randalstown rugby club when I was about eight and stayed right through the age grades.Did you play other sports growing up?Not really. I started with football but it wasn’t for me.Have you played in other positions?I played in the back row for a long time, then started playing hooker at Ulster and stayed there.Who had a big influence on your career?The whole club at Randalstown, especially Greg McPherson and Nigel Gilbert.When did you link up with Ulster?I joined the U18s a year young after they spotted me at Randalstown. I got into the Ireland U18 Clubs squad in my second year at Ulster and then went up to Ireland U20.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ [Anglican Communion News Service] New Zealand’s two archbishops have called for a “more generous” approach to refugees and a “substantial increase” on the quota for the country’s refugee intake. They are also calling for “extra pathways” for refugees to enter New Zealand.Archbishops Brown Turei and Philip Richardson made their case in a submission to New Zealand’s Minister of Immigration, Michael Woodhouse, and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Murray McCully. The pair are charged with recommending to the New Zealand Cabinet where the country’s refugee quota should be set for the next three years.In a detailed written submission, the two Archbishops argue that New Zealand has been a “minimal contributor” where refugee and asylum-seeker intake is concerned, with the country’s refugee quota pegged at 750 for nearly 20 years. While they don’t suggest a specific revised number, they say they are “very sympathetic with the calls to double the quota.”They also say the “alternative pathways” could include community-based private sponsorship schemes – where sponsors, typically churches, NGOs or small groups of concerned citizens – put their hands up and say, in effect: “We’ll be responsible for this group of refugees.” They point to the fact that more than 275,000 refugees have been resettled in Canada using this model.They also suggest ramping up the existing family re-unification scheme – where a solo refugee can sponsor family members (who may be stuck in refugee camps, or in danger) to go to New Zealand. This scheme is current capped at 300 people a year.“We know that Catholic and Anglican Christians throughout the country will step up to provide support and assistance to those our country offers refuge to,” the two archbishops say. “We have done so in the past, we continue to support newcomers and we commit ourselves and our resources into the future to this task.”A fuller report and links to the archbishops’ full submission, can be found on Anglican Taonga.

The religions share a sense of dignity, quiet and respect. The intention was to create a calm, contemplative space for our client to escape the city and spend time with his friends. Save this picture!© Andrew LeeThe first decision was to keep the building low to the skyline. This was done by breaking it up in to 3 separate elements: the living accommodation, the bedrooms wing, and a studio space.Save this picture!© James Benedict BrownA natural bowl in the landscape was turned in to a lochan by damming the out-flowing burns – this became the focal point of the views and was intended to increase the sense of tranquillity. Materials were chosen which were found in the surrounding landscape – metal from the galvanised gates, larch from the fence posts and stone from walls and fanks. Internally the building has a simple palette of Caithness stone and oak. We took these materials and forms and refined and abstracted them. The larch is used as a rainscreen to give a crisp finish, the Caithness stone has been honed to a smooth surface, the oak panels set out on a 600 grid and the stone walls have been detailed to help create enclosure.Save this picture!© James Benedict BrownThe building is heavily insulated with external shutters as a barrier to the worst of the gales, and an air source heat pump to heat the water. The result is a building which not only uses sustainable technology, it sits low and easily in its landscape, inspired by the local materials and culture.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFour Architectural Innovations Make Time’s Top 25 Inventions For 2013Architecture News“Immersive Bowl-Shaped Structure” Proposed to be High Line’s Final GatewayArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/449422/borreraig-house-dualchas-architects Clipboard Borreraig House / Dualchas ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBorreraig House / Dualchas Architects 2011 Photographs Projects ArchDaily Save this picture!© Andrew Lee+ 16 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/449422/borreraig-house-dualchas-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Glendale, United Kingdom Year: Houses Year: 2011 Architects: Dualchas Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeDualchas ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGlendaleHousesUnited KingdomPublished on November 19, 2013Cite: “Borreraig House / Dualchas Architects” 19 Nov 2013.

TelephoneDespite telephone being perceived as a highly ’welcomed’ and ‘easy to respond’ to channel, fundraisers underestimate people’s response to it.“Telephone fundraising is one of the very few channels to over index on all response criteria amongst donors and it is particularly encouraging to see scores for 12 of the 14 engagement metrics improve amongst donors too, often significantly so. Whilst there is still much work to be done, these results should be seen as a clear indication that collective improvements made across the sector over the last year are improving the way telephone fundraising is perceived and received by the public.”Tony Charalambides, Managing Director, Listen FundraisingDirect mailFindings reveal signs that fundraisers misjudge people’s responses to direct mail. For example while they overestimate how likely people are to donate/respond later to this channel they underestimate people’s likeliness to respond immediately.“As a one to one medium Direct Mail has traditionally been strong in the areas of targeting and personalisation and this is reflected by it being seen by all the groups as being ‘relevant to my likes and dislikes’ with the highest scores in the female and – perhaps surprisingly – the 18-34 groups.“Ensuring that the mailing is relevant to the recipient has also made sure that Direct Mail is considered to have ‘interesting content.”Claire Gingell, Marketing Manager, ONEPOSTDoor to doorFundraisers were found to underestimate engagement with door to door amongst those below the age of 55. Contrarily, findings show that those under 55 engage with this channel the most.“Door-to-door fundraising continues to perform well, remaining one of the most effective fundraising methods to reach and engage large numbers of individuals across the UK. Without doubt, D2D fundraising’s biggest strength is that it facilitates one-on- one conversations with supporters, igniting their passion for charitable causes and laying the foundations for a long-term committed relationship. These conversations also enable supporters to tell us about their future fundraising preferences, an issue that has become increasingly important within the new regulatory landscape.”David Mbaziira, Head of External Communications, HOME FundraisingDRTVThough fundraisers underestimate people’s engagement with DRTV, they have been proven to be right for assuming that engagement with DRTV increases with age.“With trust in charities faltering in 2015, and fundraising practice under scrutiny, there is an underlying public scepticism in how charities solicit and use donations. Maybe that’s the reason ‘trustworthiness’ was one of the DRTV attributes that fell steeply in this year’s survey, along with a less dramatic drop, but a drop nevertheless, in ‘likeliness to respond’?“Charities need to address donor confidence in 2016 and beyond. Initiatives like the Fundraising Regulator and the Commission On The Donor Experience (of which WPN Chameleon is a founding sponsor) will help to rebuild that trust.”Gail Cookson, Fundraising Director, WPN ChameleonThe Role of PreferencesFindings also showed that channel choice can affect people’s choice to consent to receive fundraising communications. For example, with email, people are most likely to give their email consent to SMS or Direct Mail communications, and least likely to consent to communication by email from street or door to door fundraisers.“The future winners will be the charities who have the ability to test and roll-out different permission statements to different supporter segments, by channel and by product. Effectively, permissions gathering will become like other aspects of direct marketing – requiring research, testing, segmentation and analysis to determine the best consent rates. We are working with our charity clients to implement our Preference Centre solution which is compliant with the EU GDPR laws and also enables best practice and maximises consent levels across channels and products.”Mark Robinson, Managing Director, Kudos Data SolutionsFor more findings download the report for free (normally £50) with the following code: UKFU16.

By studying the strengths and merits of each channel, the insights gained can enable fundraisers to maximise the effectiveness of a campaign with a sophisticated multi-channel approach.”says David Cole, Managing Director at fast.MAP.Some findings and misconceptions are highlighted below.
