Yuan free to rise five per cent against dollar in 2011

first_img IN a bid to tackle its problematic inflation, China will let the yuan rise by around five per cent against the dollar this year, it was revealed yesterday.However, any appreciation will do little to narrow China’s trade surplus with the US, a Chinese government official warned.The trade imbalance is a constant source of irritation between the two countries.“Yuan appreciation will make imports cheaper to reduce the impact of rising commodity prices, providing relief from inflationary pressure,” a Chinese language newspaper reported.The yuan is expected to be about three per cent higher in a year’s time, according to pricing in offshore forwards markets.China let the yuan rise 3.6 per cent in 2010. But traders expect the yuan to appreciate about two per cent in the first quarter of 2011 alone.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Are you still invested in Bitcoin despite the cryptocurrency’s ongoing slump? If so, I do hope you didn’t buy around the all-time peak of nearly $20,000.The price has actually blipped up a little in the first few days of January, apparently in response to escalating tensions between the US and Iran. But it’s dropped back a little as the threat of all-out war thankfully seems to be receding. At approximately $7,900 at the time of writing, it’s way down on that late 2017 high, and recent days really have shown Bitcoin’s short-term volatility.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Hedge?If I owned any cryptocurrencies now (though I never have), I’d dump them in an instant. But not because I have any inkling of where the price is likely to go in the next few weeks or months, as nobody really has.Analytics firm SFOX has released a report that shows Bitcoin experienced a low correlation with more traditional investment assets like stocks and gold in the second half of 2019, but I see no surprise there — I mean, why would it?Some crypto enthusiasts have been suggesting that makes it a good hedge investment, but sorry, what? If you’re worried about the volatility of your stocks portfolio, buy something far more volatile and unpredictable as a defence? That’s absurd. Followers of this ethereal nonsense seem desperate to find apparently rational reasons (reasons that use proper investing terminology like “hedge”) to justify it.So what do I think you should do with your money instead? I could just say I’d invest it in stocks instead and leave it at that, but instead I’d like to mention a conversation I had recently about this very subject.Gamble“You say you can’t tell where the Bitcoin price is going to go next week,” said the friend I was talking to, then asking “but how can you tell which shares are going to rise and fall next week instead?“To me, that demonstrated a fundamental misunderstanding of investing in shares. This person saw both shares and Bitcoin as exactly the same kind of gamble on short-term pricing, and unfortunately a huge number of people in the UK seem to share that dangerous misapprehension.The obvious answer is that I have no idea which shares are going to rise and which are going to fall next week, or next month, or over any short-term timescale. But the key differentiation between shares and crypto is that, the longer the timescale, the greater my confidence in the upward movement of shares.ConfidenceThat confidence is founded on two things. One is the historic record, with the UK stock market having beaten all other forms of investment for more than a century, and there’s a rationality behind it. Look at the vastly richer lifestyles we enjoy today than 100 years ago — that’s all down to the wealth generated by our free market companies.The other is that shares do not represent a number on a chart, they represent the part ownership of real business, making real profits, and often paying real dividends. Would you prefer to gamble your money away, or use it to buy a share of all that future wealth instead?last_img read more

Episcopalians join others to speak up on Trump refugee ban

first_img Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ [Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island] Bishop W. Nicholas Knisely and numerous clergy from the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Islandhave joined a group of interfaith leaders in signing a letter asking the Trump administration and Congress to “demonstrate moral leadership and affirm their support for the resettlement of refugees from all over the world to the United States.”On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order suspending the nation’s refugee resettlement program and restricting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries for four months. He also suspended the resettlement of Syrian refugees indefinitely.The interfaith group of Rhode Island religious leaders who signed the petition comprises: the Rev. Dr. Tom Wiles, executive minister for the American Baptist Churches of Rhode Island, the Right Rev. W. Nicholas Knisely, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island, the Rev. James Hazelwood, Lutheran bishop of the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Rabbi Sarah Mack, president of the Board of Rabbis of Greater Rhode Island and Mufti Ikram Haq of the Rhode Island Council for Muslim Advancement, the Rev. Dr. Don Anderson, executive director of the Rhode Island Council of Churches and the Rev. Barbara J. Libby, interim director of the Rhode Island Conference of Churches (United Churches of Christ).“This nation has an urgent moral responsibility to receive refugees and asylum seekers who are in dire need of safety,” states the letter, which has been signed by more than 2,000 religious leaders from across the country. “Today, with more than five million Syrian refugees fleeing violence and persecution and hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties, the United States has an ethical obligation as a world leader to reduce this suffering and generously welcome Syrian refugees into our country.”The letter continues:“The U.S. Refugee Resettlement program has been and should remain open to those of all nationalities and religions who face persecution on account of the reasons enumerated under U.S. law,” the letter, states. “We oppose any policy change that would prevent refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen, or individuals who practice Islam and other faiths from accessing the U.S. refugee resettlement program. Proposals that would have the U.S. State Department disqualify refugees from protection based on their nationality or religion fly in the face of the very principles this nation was built upon, contradict the legacy of leadership our country has historically demonstrated, and dishonor our shared humanity.”Most of the leaders who signed the letter were among a crowd of more than 1,000 people who participated in a rally against the executive order yesterday at the state house.

New Rogare project will create theory & evidence knowledge bases to help fundraisers inform work

first_img“With evidence beyond individual examples of success or failure by non-profits difficult to find, we aim to develop and share a resource-hub of best evidence and research that enhances corporate fundraising knowledge in the profession, dispels some of the widely-quoted myths around corporate fundraising, and highlights the disconnect between practice and evidence that is common in so many non-profits around the world.”  914 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 “Corporate fundraising means so many different things around the world, and is routinely seen as a ‘dark-art’ because it is often misunderstood by practitioners and decision-makers alike. There are more than a dozen different fundraising elements that all come under the banner term of corporate fundraising and, more often than not, the only metric people care about is the cash. New Rogare project will create theory & evidence knowledge bases to help fundraisers inform work Findings and recommendations from each Knowledge Collective will be posted on the Rogare website, on a new section for professional practice. Details of any new material will be announced via Rogare’s Twitter stream, on LinkedIn and through the Critical Fundraising Forum on Facebook. Chapman said: She commented: The second role is to collate and signpost the best existing knowledge about particular subjects so that fundraisers have an accessible source of evidence and theory. Rogare is today launching a new strand of work designed to help fundraisers find the theory and evidence they need to inform their work. The first task of the Legacy Fundraising Knowledge Collective – led by legacy specialist Claire Routley, also a member of Rogare’s Council – will be to publish an initial draft of its recommended knowledge base for legacy fundraising. Tagged with: Rogare “With interest growing in legacy giving, the last decade or so has seen a real growth in high-quality information available to legacy fundraisers, from academic studies to ‘how-to’ texts. We hope that pulling that information together, and providing some signposting through it, through the Legacy Fundraising Knowledge Collective will be of real benefit to practitioners. It’s a particular issue with so many organisations seeking to invest in legacy fundraising for the first time, and therefore, so many fundraisers having to rapidly develop their skills in this area.” The initial Knowledge Collectives announced today will focus on corporate and legacy fundraising, with Rogare aiming to establish more before the end of the year, with major gifts and face-to-face among the front runners. Each Collective will have a project leader and a core team to deliver two main roles. The first is to form a study or discussion group to identify gaps in research, evidence and theory, and suggest ways to fill them, come up with new research questions, and look at barriers to knowledge and suggest ways to overcome them. The Collective will also look for new ideas, thinking and trends, and share these with the rest of the CFR Network and the profession as a whole. Advertisement Anyone wishing to run a Rogare Knowledge Collective in their specialist subject can contact Ian MacQuillin at [email protected] It will see groups called Knowledge Collectives focus on particular areas, each one composed of members of Rogare’s Critical Fundraising (CFR) Network who have a keen and specialist interest in the subject matter. “Rogare’s whole rationale is to help fundraisers use the best theory and evidence to inform their professional practice. But before they can use it, they have to know where to find it, and then be able to identify the best research and recommendations. 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. Melanie May | 20 May 2021 | News “Our new Knowledge Collectives will signpost to fundraisers to the best available research-backed ideas. These Collectives are run by some of the most knowledgeable fundraisers in their specialist area, for the benefit of their peers and colleagues in the profession, ensuring that professionals have a say in the co-creation of their own knowledge base.” The Corporate Fundraising Knowledge Collective first aims to establish research questions and barriers to knowledge in corporate fundraising to kick off the study group, before building the knowledge base. It is led by Damian Chapman, director of strategic marketing and income generation at the Charity for Civil Servants in the UK and a member of the Rogare Council.
