This should include details such as targets for debt and equity, revenue and margins targets, capital investment plans and an outline of the leadership role TAB NZ will play.“This process should be considered in conjunction with the development of any options to recapitalise TAB NZ to inform that work as it develops and be completed by 30 June 2021,” Peters said.In terms of more general expectations for 2020-21, Peters said that TAB NZ is expected to continue providing detailed financial and accountability reports to the government on a regular basis, comply with legal requirements, ensure there are no conflicts of interest and work to retain effective working relationships.“I would like to wish TAB NZ all the best for its future work; its role will be instrumental to ensuring New Zealand’s racing industry is world class,” Peters said. 2nd September 2020 | By contenteditor Minister calls on TAB NZ to lead racing’s Covid-19 recovery New Zealand Minister for Racing Winston Peters has set out his expectations for TAB NZ, saying that the new organisation should focus on helping the domestic industry recover from the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Howard Lake | 5 November 2008 | News The ability to give to charity by text message is more popular among younger people than previously thought, according to research from nfpsynergy.According to the survey, 38% of 25-34 year olds and 31% of 16-24 year olds said they would be likely to give to charity via text message.However, only 5% of all people surveyed said they had given by SMS in the last month with 25-34 year olds most likely to have done so (11%). Current charges put off 58% of people surveyed from doing so.The survey was commissioned by a coalition working to break down barriers to fundraising and donating by text. The coalition is led by Joe Saxton of nfpSynergy, on behalf of the Institute of Fundraising, and Hannah Terrey of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).According to the survey, 28% of 16-24 year olds said that they would like to receive free information from charities if they had given permission.Joe Saxton said: “This latest research shows that, whilst the fundraising potential of SMS texting may be substantial, not least amongst the young, many donors find current costs, just for collecting donations in this way, prohibitive.Terrey added: “Charities are missing out because the potential of text donations isn’t realised. We need to encourage the next generation to start giving small amounts now and in a way that suits their lifestyle”.The coalition said that they are keen to hear from more charities who have run text campaigns or are interested in using SMS for fundraising in the future.http://research.nfpsynergy.net/s/I7SNBdPj1G9eONn 36 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Digital Institute of Fundraising Nfpsynergy Research / statistics Young people keen to give by text, says survey About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The North Scotia Ridge is a series of islands and submarine ridges extending 2000 km fromTierra del Fuego to South Georgia in the western South Atlantic. The ridge forms the elevated northerntectonic margin of the Scotia Sea, and accommodates E–W sinistral strike-slip motion at the SouthAmerican–Scotia plate boundary. Existing studies have shown that the northern flank of the North ScotiaRidge is a large and continuous accretionary prism, formed during presumed mid–late Cenozoic N–Sconvergence. In this study, we present long-range side-scan sonar (GLORIA) images and seismic reflectionprofiles which show the structural style of the accretionary prism for the first time. The youngest accretedsediments show a uniform fabric of initial deformation (symmetric–gently asymmetric folds of 1–4 kmwavelength), which has been subsequently disrupted at shallower depths by additional shortening anduplift. Between 52 degrees 45 minutes W and 50 degrees 30 minutes W, the deformation front is exposed at the sea floor, and the Falkland Trough retains the appearance of an active convergent margin. Elsewhere, however, the deformation front is buried beneath younger, undeformed drift sediments indicating that convergence has ceased. GLORIA sonographs also show geological features consistent with current-control of sedimentation, nondeposition,and erosion beneath the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. In particular, this study describes current-influenced sedimentation in the Falkland Trough, and steep-sided, eroded depressions and diffuse slope-parallel fabric on the elevated Falkland Plateau.
