Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. UK charities have doubled the number of followers they have attracted on key social media channels, according to the 2012 Social Charity Index, published today by Visceral Business.The top 100 charities now have• 3.7 million followers on Twitter, up from 2 million in 2011 Advertisement Because social media is now the norm for most major charities, it is becoming more important for all charities to differentiate themselves. “Charities now need to be able to pick and develop a portfolio of platforms that suits their brand”, said Anne McCrossan of Visceral Business.She also considers whether these networks might lead to a change in how charities market themselves. “Will expenditure on not for profit marketing continue”, she asks, “to go through third party agencies in the way it has done, or should charities invest directly in developing their own capabilities as expanded, networked organisations, directly with their donors and supporters and by building the capabilities of their people?”The study also suggests that many charities are still not yet realising the potential of supporters wanting to share their own involvement in fundraising activities using social media. For example, the report contends that “only nine of the charities in the Top 100 that do well on their strength of followings on Facebook, Twitter and other social platforms, are also charities that do well when it comes to standing out as being ‘shareable’ around fundraising.” Source: via Howard on Pinterestcenter_img Charities have doubled social media engagement in a year, says report • seven million followers on Facebook, compared to 3.5 million a year ago.• one million followers on Google+This is the second year that the Social Charity Index has been published. Visceral Business describe it as “the biggest and most comprehensive study of the state of social business in charities conducted in the UK”.This year it has been “co-created in collaboration with over 50 charities” and involved studying 300 charities and their use of social media. It has been published in association with JustGiving.Ranking charities by use of social media and impactVisceral Business have also produced a Networked Power Index (NPI) that shows how charity income, supporter engagement and fundraising impact are becoming increasingly intertwined. It ranks charities by looking at at the relationship of income to social activity, calculating which charities are most connected to, and able to derive income from, supporter engagement.Top of the list this year is UNICEF UK. Laila Takeh, Unicef UK’s Head of Digital Engagement attributes this ranking to the charity’s aim to “deliver experiences where the supporter is part of the story and not just an onlooker”.Medecins Sans Frontieres has show the most rapid growth in the past year, and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Children in Need, British Royal Legion, The Samaritans, and Girlguiding UK have all performed well compared to last year. Tagged with: Digital Research / statistics Which channels do charities use?• The number of channels that charities use is increasing.• Facebook and Twitter still dominate, with YouTube established as a secondary platform.• Google+, Vimeo, Instagram, Pinterest and Storify are emerging as popular platforms for some leading charities.• Eight charities have built a strong presence of over 50,00 followers each on Google+.• LinkedIn is still be under-utilised compared to the other platforms.• Similarly charities are not as a whole making much use of location-based tools like Foursquare.How are charities using social media in 2012?A growing number of charities are investing in their own digital communities: 33% of charities now have their own community, up from 21% a year ago.According to the report, “smaller, more networked charities in which people feel involved, and where there’s less of a perceived difference between the inside and the outside of the organisation, are doing particularly well”.Charities perceive that owned and earned media are more likely to be effective compared to paid or promoted media. By developing these growing followings, they are, say the report’s authors, “developing a networked power to challenge conventional marketing methods” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Former minister sues Congolese journalist for quoting NGO report

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Pascal Mulegwa, journaliste et correspondant pour Radio France Internationale (RFI). News Radio France Internationale correspondent Pascal Mulegwa has been summoned to appear before a Kinshasa court today in the defamation case brought against him by Senator José Makila, a former transport minister, over Mulegwa’s story for RFI on 20 September quoting the NGO’s claim that Makila may have channelled the transport company’s funds into his senatorial election campaign.When Mulegwa responded to an earlier summons in October, he was questioned about his story by prosecutors in the Kinshasa district of Gombe but the plaintiff, Makila, did not turn up for the hearing.Mulegwa told RSF said he did not understand why he has been charged and put on trial in this way. “The former minister wasn’t even the target of the story. I contacted him before the story was broadcast. He sued me 24 hours later.”“This case shows how journalists are still subjected to intimidation in the DRC,” RSF spokesperson Pauline Adès-Mével said. “Pascal Mulegwa did absolutely nothing wrong. He just quoted information in a report by an NGO, which is not being sued. No real attempt has been made to establish the facts because the plaintiff did not deign to appear at the previous summons. We call for all charges to be dropped against this journalist, who just did his job. It’s time to stop intimidating journalists in connection with their work.”Journalists and media outlets are still subjected to many abuses in the DRC. Journalist in Danger (JED), RSF’s local partner organization, painted an alarming picture in its latest annual report on 2 November, revealing that it had registered no fewer than 116 press freedom violation in 2020, including 40 arrests.RSF voiced concern last month about the arrests of two TV journalists by the National Intelligence Agency because of the way they filmed President Félix Tshisekedi as he was about to hold an audience in the presidential palace in Kinshasa. In September, a radio station manager was arrested in the central province of Sankuru in response to a complaint by the local governor.The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the withdrawal of criminal defamation proceedings against a journalist in the Democratic Republic of Congo who quoted an NGO report linking a former transport minister to the possible misuse of a public transport company’s funding. The journalist was just doing his job, RSF said.

DynamicAction Announces DynamicRecipes [Exposure] – Cracking the Code of Digital Merchandise Sorting

first_img Twitter DynamicAction Announces DynamicRecipes [Exposure] – Cracking the Code of Digital Merchandise Sorting REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– DynamicAction announces the newest product in its Retail Analytics Program, DynamicRecipes [Exposure]. DynamicRecipes [Exposure] significantly improves digital merchandising performance across a Retailers’ site search, personalization, online merchandising management, eCommerce platforms and other content delivery systems. DynamicRecipes [Exposure] rapidly expands a Merchandiser’s capabilities to optimize their product sorting to achieve higher gross margin, faster product turns and more consistent sales growth at every point digital products are displayed. By incorporating over 275 unique metrics, the “ingredients” missing from Retail’s current sorting tools to meet the needs of every category and product line merchandiser managing the digital storefront are now available. With a proven set of product scoring models to choose from, Retailers now can deploy extremely focused sorting recipes to address a myriad of retail business objectives. “At the core of DynamicRecipes [Exposure], the application enables a Retailer’s merchandisers to incorporate a full context of inventory, profit, customer lifetime value, and other business attributes across all the engines they work with simultaneously,” said John Squire, CEO, DynamicAction. “With DynamicRecipes, retailers have an immediate measure of the results of those engines’ output, and a system that prescribes the next set of tuning actions to consistently and efficiently maximize profit while growing demand.” Digital Merchandising, Sorted DynamicRecipes already comes pre-configured to optimize the leading personalization and customer experience and messaging engines retailers have invested heavily in today. What sets DynamicRecipes apart is the flexibility for Merchants and Category Managers to build objective-specific recipes that focus their in-house and third party AI engines to their unique business goals globally across the digital storefront and distinctly in their category. These objectives include:Optimizing gross margin growth by driving views to items that drive significant margin per product view.Maximizing revenue and demand generation by consistently sorting products that generate higher sales and bigger baskets.Tackling overstocks by boosting exposure for items with extremely large Inventory Value or Stock Cover positions to quickly reach the optimal inventory level.Limiting returns by ensuring items that have poor customer reviews and high relative return rates are not promoted at the top of pages or in recommendation zones until quality issues can be investigated and addressed.Slowing down unplanned stockouts by balancing the exposure of items that will quickly sell out with those that need more exposure to meet their sell thru goal. DynamicAction first disrupted the retail industry with the introduction of the DynamicAction Retail Analytics Platform that empowers retailers to make decisions with the speed of Amazon, and followed that up with the release of DynamicView, which equips Retailers’ merchandisers, planners and marketers to efficiently optimize product performance on their digital platforms. Retailers can implement DynamicRecipes [Exposure] on its own or pair it with either of these solutions, to efficiently fuel digital merchandise sorting.

Email* The Desert International Horse Park celebrated the end of the eight week Desert Circuit with a grand finale of the $250,000 FEI Grand Prix CSI4* 1.55m, drawing top grand prix riders for the event. It was Nicky Galligan (IRL) and Javas Miss Jordan, who’s luck of the Irish, galloped them into the final victory of the circuit.Thirty-two horse and rider combinations took a swing at the Marina Azevedo (BRA) designed track for a chance at a big payday. Richard Spooner aboard Quirado RC, was the first to go clean going eleventh in the order. Galligan went right after Spooner, laying down another clear round. The remainder of the class tried their best, leaving Spooner and Galligan with the only two clear rounds to head to the jump off.Spooner returned first setting the pace with a tight track and clear round with a time of 45.70.“With a top rider and a quick horse like that behind you, you just try to go out and stay in the yellow, don’t get into the red, and put a little pressure on him and hope that maybe he’ll make a mistake,” said Spooner about going first in the jump off.Galligan put the pedal to the metal, stopping the clock at 41.15 with a fault free round for the win. For his victory, Galligan received a six month lease on an Stephex Van. For Canada, Beth Underhill and Count Me In finished 4th, Ben Asselin and Luikan Q were 5th, Darrin Dlin and Buddy Bounce placed 8th and 9th spot went to Lisa Carlsen aboard Livestream 2.“I was thinking, have fun today, [it’s a] two horse jump off,” explained Galligan. “I have a friend that always says to me, I want to be proud of you and I want to see you win trying to win rather than to lose trying to win. So when you have that chance, you just go for it. Richard [Spooner] had an amazing track in front of me, his line was so tight on his track, but mine is quick across the ground, so once I could keep the rhythm and keep going, I trusted her to be quick enough.”Nine four-faulters tried to be the fastest of the group with Olympian Will Simpson and Chacco P showing how it’s done, claiming third place as the fastest four faulter.“I’m so glad I wasn’t in the jump off,” laughed Simpson. “I was third anyway! It was an honor to be here with this caliber of riders, the quality of the course was incredible, the feel, the footing, the whole atmosphere of the place has been phenomenal the whole eight weeks. My horse has just gotten better and better every week and that’s a testimony to the place and the management and I’d like to congratulate them on doing a great job.”“This overall has been my first season to come to the West Coast and my first taste of showing out here. I have to say, fellow competitors, horse park staff, everybody from the ground up, it’s been absolutely a pleasure to be here. I’ve made some incredible friends, the human connection is incredible, but I have to say the management is second to none for trying to put the horses first and always improve themselves, the rings, the footings, the innovations like the hacking track around the whole facility so the horses don’t get ring sour, things like that really mean a lot to me and I’m really grateful that they are putting that thought into it,” said Galligan.“I think that management has just done a fantastic job of stepping up the game out here and to have all these FEI competitions means a lot to us, starting out the year with difficult competition like that again, as Nicky [Galligan] stated, the footing is phenomenal and it’s the little things. We’re lucky to have footing of that caliber and space of that caliber so my hat’s off to management, thank you for everything,” added Spooner.“There’s been so many fun things to do here at the horse park, and through all of this pandemic we’re going through, they’ve done an amazing job of keeping it under control while having a little bit of entertainment. I can hardly wait until next year when everything is up and going and people are really going to be able to come out here, enjoy themselves, and see some world class showjumping,” explained Simpson.Steve Hankin, President and CEO of the Desert International Horse Park explained, “When the owners came together a couple years ago to buy the place, our goal was simply to build the sport and I think from our standpoint, we couldn’t be more excited about the progress we’ve made the past two years. The high performance jumping program was a real goal of ours, to help rebuild it on the West Coast. It’s really exciting to have two veterans here who have given us some confidence and been incredibly patient with us as we figure this out. I think for newcomers to be running a park of this size and for these guys to all have confidence in us has been really tremendous and it inspires us as owners. We go to work tonight to start on some big changes and we’re excited to have everyone back in the fall.”The Desert International Horse Park is excited to begin new improvements during the off season with an exciting lineup of Major League Showjumping and CSI2*-CSI5* events next season. We’ll #seeyouinthedesert this fall for more exciting competition.Complete results here.
