This is the second year in a row that the total reclaimed has dropped from its 2010/11 peak of £1,071billion.In spite of this, numbers still remain considerably above what was reclaimed in the pre-recession years of 2007/08, when £895 million was re-claimed by charities.On the face of it this appears to be a worrying trend for charities. On the other hand the underlying picture is more complex.Effect of reduced income tax rateIn April 2008 the basic rate of income tax was reduced from 22% to 20%. This had an impact on reducing the amount of Gift Aid which could be recovered by charities. In order to ease this problem, the government agreed to provide transitional relief on donations made for the following three years.The value of transitional relief has been declining over the past few years; from £120 million in 2010-11 to £50 million in 2011-12, and then to zero in 2012-13. It is this decline in transitional relief which has driven the overall fall in recovery of Gift Aid. In fact the amount claimed for underlying Gift Aid (excluding transitional relief) has actually continued to increase during the years of 2010/11 through to 2012/13.Underlying Gift Aid has grown since 2008So, despite the headline figures suggesting a decline, the underlying trend is positive for Gift Aid claims. Indeed, the value of claims on underlying Gift Aid, excluding the transitional relief element, has continued to grow from 2008/09 to 2012/13 despite the difficult economic times.The one element of data that might be less positive is the decline in the number of charities making Gift Aid claims. However, this figure has fluctuated over the years, with no clear trend.

For a fiction reader, a non-fiction book can be a bit of a slog. But this book, still unfinished when the author died in 1950 and first published in 1956, was so fascinating. Recommended to me by one of Workers World Party’s leading comrades, “The Life and Times of Chu Teh” by Agnes Smedley was exciting to me because it gave me real insight into the Chinese Revolution. General Zhu De (contemporary spelling) was a close associate of Mao Zedong and the Supreme Commander of the New People’s Army (Red Army). He was a military and political leader in the People’s Republic of China until his death in 1976.It took an incredible struggle by the Chinese people to overthrow the old feudal order. The book is a timeline of the Chinese struggle against imperialism and profiteers, using the vehicle of General Zhu’s life. And what a life it was!There is much in the book about the Long March. The revolutionary army, led by the Communist Party, was able to put theory into practice in the liberated territories of the North. No more taxes on the poor, no confiscation of crops from the poorest peasant farmers, schools for everyone including adults, the Red Army working hand in hand with the peasants to increase food production, and participatory democracy in every village, town and city. Political education was stressed which encouraged principled behavior by Communist leaders and the rank and file.Fast forward to 2020 when COVID burst onto the world scene. The health of the people of China came before the profits of multinational investors. COVID infection has been contained. China today is still a dictatorship of the proletariat – a workers’ state – thanks to the mighty Chinese Revolution of 1949. The book is a long read, but stick with it. It’s worth it!For more information on socialist vs. capitalist countries in response to COVID, see “Vaccines highlight differences between capitalism and socialism” at workers.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This will bring together dozens of administrative departments that are currently scattered across campus into one three-story building. The departments include the chancellor’s office, provost’s office, university advancement, financial services, financial aid, marketing, registrar, career center, Title IX office, student affairs and the student center.(Photo courtesy of TCU Facility Planning & Construction)TCU Physical Plant’s Project Manager Brooke Ruesch says that it will be a huge advantage to have the administration in one building because they all work together in some way. She added that the ultimate goal is to empty much of Sadler Hall and the other spaces administration is currently occupying in the academic part of campus.The university also wants to privatize Bellaire Drive North from Rogers Avenue to Stadium Drive so that the road becomes a better walk space.“The intent of closing Bellaire and making a real nice pedestrian access is just to kind of make it safer for students right now,” Ruesch said. “Bellaire is not heavily used, but it isn’t pedestrian friendly.”(Photo courtesy of TCU Facility Planning & Construction)Philosophy major Philip Kafuluma lives in the nearby Tom Brown/Pete Wright apartments and has to cross Bellaire to go to Kroger for groceries.“I usually have to go around rush hour and it is a bit of a pain to cross the street,” Kafuluma said. He said he often sees drivers on their cell phones not paying attention or speeding down the road.Ruesch said that closure of Bellaire Drive North would reduce the traffic quite a bit on the south side of campus, allowing students to cross more safely. That said, the traffic has to go somewhere. Nearby residents are concerned the street closure could bring more congestion to their front door.“We have very low traffic counts coming through Wabash and we want to keep it that way,” Marth Jones, a nearby resident, said. “The neighborhood put in a request with Fort Worth Planning and with TCU that they put some type of diverter.”Ruesch says that project managers have worked closely with all stakeholders to make sure everyone is excited about the plans. The city and the university are also studying inbound, outbound and cut-through traffic patterns to prepare for the possible closure of North Bellaire Drive. They are also looking into adding a new traffic light and a diverter at the intersection of Berry Street and Wabash Avenue to prevent cut-through traffic.If the city approves the project this spring, phase one will begin in the summer. This phase will include utility work on Berry Street and the south side of Wabash Avenue. Construction of the new administration building could begin as early as February 2019.

News Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia SomaliaAfrica News Organisation RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region January 6, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists held for reporting possible Ebola case News Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of three radio journalists who have been held without charge since their arbitrary arrest in Mogadishu on 3 January for reporting the existence of a possible case of the Ebola virus in the Lower Shabelle region. Their independent radio station, Radio Risaala, has also been closed on the orders of the authorities.The three journalists are Radio Risaala director Mohamed Abdiwahab Abdullahi, editor Mohamed Kafi Sheik Abukar and reporter Mohamed Abdi Ali. They were arrested after broadcasting an interview with an inhabitant of Mulo Sharay, a town in Lower Shabelle, about the possible Ebola case. At a press conference later the same day, health minister Ali Mohamed Mohamud categorically denied the existence of any Ebola case in Somalia. Two other journalists with a privately-owned radio station were arrested in Mogadishu’s Waberi district the next day while covering a suicide bombing that killed five people. Radio Goobjoog programme director Mohamed Salaad Osman and reporter Ibrahim Haji Yusuf were held for several hours without ever being told why.“We condemn these five arbitrary arrests and the closure of an independent news outlet, which constitute flagrant violations of freedom of the media and information, Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles said. We urge the authorities to free the three journalists still held without charge and to allow Radio Risaala to resume broadcasting. Journalists must be able to work freely, inform their fellow citizens and express public concerns without being threatened with jail as soon as they show an interest in public interest subjects of a sensitive nature.”These arrests, which are indicative of the current climate of great tension for the Somalia media, came just two days before the trial of four Shabelle Media Network journalists was due to resume yesterday but was adjourned in the absence of the defence lawyers. Two of the journalists, Radio Shabelle editor Mohamed Bashir Hashi and Sky FM director Mohamud Dahir, have been held since August on charges of inciting violence, defaming the president and “endangering the Somali state’s integrity, independence or unity.” The last charge carries a possible death sentence. The other two, Shabelle Media Network owner Abdiimalik Yusuf Mohamud and Radio Shabelle editor-in-chief Ahmed Abdi Hassan, who are charged with incitement to commit crimes and break the law, were released provisionally on 21 October.Somalia is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy also directed the Secretary in the Municipal Administration and Water Supply to list out the measures taken in terms of the orders passed by the Court to stop the practice of Manual Scavenging. It may be noted that on Wednesday (10th March), the High Court had sought immediate information from all the Districts, including the Municipalities and Municipal Corporations, pertaining to manual scavenging work undertaken in the Municipalities and the Corporations. However, the Court didn’t receive any response from the State, and it was submitted that information had been sought from the Districts and it may take some time to collect the information. To this, the Court remarked, “This petition has been pending from 2017 and there is no doubt that each time the matter has come up, the Court has stressed on the immediate need to stop the inhuman practice which amounts to exploitation of a particular class which has suffered for generations.” Significantly, the Court also observed, “Young men belonging to such communities, in desperation and the lure of quick bucks, undertake the risky exercise of entering underground pits and are quickly engulfed by carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide or like toxic fumes that leave them little scope to turn around and escape.” Noting that the Municipalities and Corporations may have stopped directly engaging manual scavenging work, the Court observed that the contractors are engaged for the purpose and Corporation and Municipal officials look the other way, while manual scavengers are still sent down the pits to carry filth on their heads as they come up. Further, the Court issued a direction for the states that, “It must be made clear by the appropriate department of the State to all heads of Municipal Corporations and Municipalities in the State that any manual scavenging death within the jurisdiction of the relevant Municipality or Corporation will result in the Commissioner or Chairperson or the like controlling authority of the relevant body to face criminal charges and be subjected to immediate arrest.” Lastly, the Court also directed the respondents to ensure that the compensation is immediately reached to the appropriate heirs of the deceased manual scavengers. With these directions, the matter was listed for further hearing on Tuesday (06th April).In related news, the Karnataka High Court in December 2020 issued several directions to the state government to ensure proper implementation of the provisions of the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty, while hearing a petition filed by All India Council of Trade Unions(AICTU) and High Court Legal Services Committee, observed, “There can be no dispute that our Constitutional philosophy does not permit any form of manual scavenging. The right of a citizen to live with dignity is an integral part of the fundamental rights guaranteed to the citizens under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The preamble of the Constitution shows that the Constitution seeks to protect the dignity of an individual. There can be no dispute that manual scavenging is most inhuman and it infringes the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 21.” Again, this month itself, the Karnataka High Court expressed serious concerns over the recent deaths of two manhole workers and another incident of a sweeper committing suicide after being allegedly forced to do manual scavenging.A division bench headed by the Chief Justice AS Oka on Monday directed the State Government to respond to a memo filed seeking to ensure fair and proper investigation into the incident of a pourakarmika of Maddur Town Municipality, in Karnataka, committing suicide after being forced to clean a manhole without safety equipment.The Karnataka High Court last month suggested to the State government to consider issuing a general direction to all authorities and agencies and instrumentalities of the state for implementation of Rule 3, of The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Rules, 2013.
