Many companies are now reinstating their dividends and even paying the dividends that were cut to shareholders. A dividend recovery stock with a brighter futureIn a trading update back in September, packaging company DS Smith (LSE: SMDS), said it has more confidence in the future. As a result, it would pay an interim dividend.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…Since then, the firm has declared an interim dividend of 4p per share, even as its half-year profit before tax fell 54% to £97m. Management at DS Smith believes market conditions have stabilised in recent months, which makes sense when you realise one of its big end markets is e-commerce.I think DS Smith took the chance of a dividend suspension during the worst of the pandemic to help it cut its debt. At least I hope that’s what it did. If so, it’ll be good for shareholders.As will investment in the business. The packaging group recently announced it’s to build two packaging plants in unspecified “fast growth” regions. They will be built to supply the e-commerce sector.Overall then DS Smith has rebased its payout to lower than pre-pandemic levels. The implication of that is it should be able to have higher dividend growth. That to me makes it a UK share with an exciting dividend recovery story. It could be a good stock to own in 2021. Two other companies I likeThe insurer Admiral and the housebuilder Persimmon are two listed groups that have dividend recovery potential. The former paid a dividend of 91.2p in 2020 including a deferred final dividend because of the pandemic. That was compared to a dividend of 119.3p per share in 2019. The insurer then has plenty of room I think to grow its payout to shareholders.Persimmon has already laid out its plan to pay as much to shareholders in 2021 as it did in 2019. That’s after a massive dip this year, which is understandable given fears over the economy. The 110p dividend per share this year is less than half what shareholders got the previous year. So again there’s plenty of room for growth.Underpinning the growth in the dividend and the recovery from the pandemic is that fact that in my view both these FTSE 100 companies are quality groups.Admiral’s share price was relatively steady during the worst of the pandemic back in March. Since then the share price has really been motoring. The performance of the business explains this. In the six months to 30 June, pre-tax profit rose 31% to £286.1m. An impressive performance for a big business.Persimmon too has been historically a solid performer and one of the more expensive, share-price wise of the housebuilders when you look at price-to-book value. I expect it’ll keep delivering for investors in an industry that creates high margins.There’s a recovery underway and I think these shares will do better than most in 2021, especially when it comes to their shareholder payouts. I think these shares could be the best dividend recovery plays in the UK Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.last_img read more

The service also saw the Pope and Archbishop exchange gifts as a sign of friendship – echoing the moment in 1966 when Pope Paul VI presented his papal ring to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Michael Ramsey – a moment that ushered in a new era of dialogue.The days in Rome also saw the formal presentation of a document detailing 20 years of work on reconciling the two traditions by the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission. And the bishops attended a symposium on current relations between the churches and the possibilities of future co-operation and dialogue.The time in Canterbury was also rich in symbolism. The Suffragan Bishop in Europe, David Hamid, gave the homily at a Catholic Vigil Mass in the undercroft of the Cathedral. The following day, the Archbishop-elect of Regina, Donald Bolen, preached the sermon at the Sung Eucharist.Bishop David – who co-chairs IARCCUM with Archbishop Don – said the summit had been an historic time in the history of our official dialogue, and deeply valuable.“This has been an immensely rich occasion, full of significance for our two traditions. It has been a source of deep joy to all the bishops gathered from all over the world, who have shared their experiences, their challenges and their wisdom. It was a profound time of collegiality and communion, and they are inspired now to go out into the world and work together for unity and common mission.”Archbishop Don said it had been an incredible time and he was excited about the future.“The bishops engaged in everything in a way that was beautiful to see. Strong friendships have formed. In our discussions, we did not shy away from the difficulties we sometimes face. But the possibilities for our two traditions working together in a needy world are abundant and promising.”One of the bishops, Archbishop Paul Nabil El Sayah from Beirut said the summit had been a joyful occasion that would yield practical results.“The atmosphere has been very positive,” he said. “You can feel there is deep, sincere fellowship and a willingness to bring new things forward. I am completely sold on practical ecumenism. I see lots of potential. This is not about looking inwards but about coming to the outside world together. The more we come together, the more our message has credibility.”Bishop Alwin Samuel, from Sialkot in Pakistan, has been working alongside Archbishop Sebastian Shaw from Lahore during the summit. Bishop Alwin said he was looking forward to collaborating more with the Catholics at home.“We have been looking at how we can take concrete steps towards unity. One example is where we have existing projects of our own. We looked at how we could begin to work together on them. For example, in areas such as health, especially women’s health, where one church might provide the resources and the other would deliver them.” Youth Minister Lorton, VA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Curate Diocese of Nebraska Communiqué from IARCCUM Summit: New steps on an ancient pilgrimage Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rome50th Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Cursillo Weekends have brought fire to our church and many others. We no longer hold back, we give out! We share our love freely in and out of church services. We even had an Episcopal tent revival here in SE GA and Bishop Curry was here. Stop being the “frozen Chosen” we aren’t that any more! Shirley Seely says: May 21, 2018 at 5:55 pm I wish Bishop Curry could address the United Nations on a theme like that. May 22, 2018 at 11:03 pm Mr. Waters, what is the Great Commandment that Jesus preached about? Love comes FIRST, the tangible actions and consequences follow. Unfortunately, Ms. Silliphant’s tongue-in-cheek sneer about the Presiding Bishop and Primate of the ECUSA not belonging in her interpretation of her “beloved Episcopal dignified church” illustrates that we have a long ways to go….

Sadly love does NOT cure societal ills-actions help eliminate poverty, homelessness and despair. Kindness towards one’s fellow humans is also. Paying for a meal for a homeless person or a person who is infirmed is a good start. Maybe those actions of kindness will generate “love” about which Bishop Curry spoke.

I think Bishop Curry fulfilled this perfectly. Not so stuffy as to be off-putting, but lively and engaging, and certainly merry and joyful. At any rate, the bride and groom were pleased, and the rest of us also enjoyed the sermon. I’d be delighted to listen to him every week, if I could! Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Revd Rana Youab Khan says: It was an unexpected choice, given that royal wedding sermons typically are delivered by clergy in the Church of England, which, like the Episcopal Church, is a province of the Anglican Communion. Much of the reaction focused on the fact that Markle is a biracial American actress and on Curry’s status as the Episcopal Church’s the first black presiding bishop.In the flurry of news stories about Curry leading up to the wedding, he sometimes was mistakenly identified as a “Chicago bishop”– he was born in Chicago but grew up in Buffalo, New York – and confusion about church hierarchy and titles may have played a role in some outlets diminishing Curry slightly, as merely “a black Episcopal priest,” for example.Many also noted his emphasis on applying the Christian faith and Jesus’ teachings to contemporary social justice issues, part of what Curry often calls the “Jesus Movement.” Curry didn’t shy away from such issues in his sermon, asking those gathered to “imagine a world where love is the way.”The Most Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, delivers the sermon at the royal wedding. Photo: Reuters“Imagine our governments and nations when love is the way,” he said. “When love is the way, then no child would go to bed hungry in this world ever again. When love is the way, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook. When love is the way, poverty would become history. When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary. When love is the way, we will lay down our swords and shields down by the riverside to study war no more.”As the buzz grew leading up to the ceremony, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby called Curry a “brilliant pastor.” Afterward, Welby, who officiated at the wedding, told Sky News he had spoken to members of the royal family, whose reaction to Curry’s sermon was overwhelmingly positive.“I think what we saw in that is that preaching is not a past art, that the use of language to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ just blew the place open,” Welby said. “It was fantastic. And you could see people just caught up in it, and excited by it.”The sermon also captured the imagination of some British tabloid headline writers, who borrowed Curry’s light-hearted line, “Two people fell in love and we all showed up,” for their covers. The Sun even gave Curry the pun-kissed new title of “Frock Star.”Some of the praise come from unexpected sources. Former Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, an atheist, tweeted, “Rev. Michael Curry could almost make me a believer.” Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Featured Jobs & Calls Tom Lowe says: May 22, 2018 at 2:28 am ++Michael Curry didn’t use notes, rather he made eye contact with people. He was passionate and knew his sermon inside out. Interestingly, he brought a fresh language to a timeless topic of marriage and love.Some people may not like this but he changed the focus of the whole ceremony from the Royal couple to the God.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] It’s never polite to upstage the newlyweds, but when the royal couple invited Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to deliver the sermon at their wedding on May 19, they surely knew that the leader of the Episcopal Church was bound to generate headlines of his own.“The surprise star of Harry and Meghan’s wedding” is how the Washington Post’s headline described Curry.“There are some things you come to expect from royal weddings,” the Post said. “One thing you don’t expect: That sermon.”The Post called Curry’s 14-minute sermon a “barnstorming address.” Canada’s CBC called it the “highlight” of the royal wedding. Vox said Curry “stole the show,” adding that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were “all but upstaged” by Curry’s “fiery sermon.” And the U.K. Guardian commentary asserted that Curry’s “royal wedding sermon will go down in history as a moment when the enduring seat of colonialism was brought before the Lord, and questioned in its own house.”The New York Times described it as a “searing, soaring” sermon about the power of love. “With its repetition and emphasis, his sermon drew upon the devices of black ecclesiastical tradition,” the Times wrote, calling it a “striking contrast” to the bishop of London’s sermon at the 2011 royal wedding.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle during their wedding May 19. Photo: ReutersThe sermon itself never strayed far from the theme of love, even as Curry incorporated references to both the Old Testament and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., as well as black spirituals. The message appeared to resonate with the royal couple, with Prince Harry at one point wiping tears from his cheeks while his bride’s smile widened.The media attention on Curry’s sermon had been intense since the moment on May 12 that he was announced as preacher. Rector Collierville, TN May 28, 2018 at 3:13 pm Larry Waters: When a wedding is held in a holy and consecrated place (i.e. a church), the focus IS ON GOD! No if, ands or buts about it. I’m glad that you have been introduced to Marcia. And I am terrible a spreading love, myself, so don’t get bent out of shape over that! Godspeed! Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ The sermon even caught the attention of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” which dressed up cast member Kenan Thompson as Curry for a short parody during the “Weekend Update” sketch on May 19.Curry gave his own take on the wedding and his sermon during an appearance the next day on NPR’s “Weekend Edition.” The sermon took its cues from the Bible passages that the couple chose, though he also hopes the message resonates beyond the walls of St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.“I hope it was a message for all of us, because all of us, no matter our political persuasion, no matter our social class, beyond all of that, we all are fundamentally children of God, and that means we’re part of God’s human family, if you will,” he told NPR. “It means that we must always find ways to better the human condition, find ways to make a world where there’s room and space for all of us.”The cover of “Crazy Christians,” a book written by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.The global exposure generated by Curry’s sermon already has brought renewed attention to his two books, “Crazy Christians” and “Songs My Grandma Sang.” It also could create unique opportunities for evangelism by the Episcopal Church, and some congregations say they already are seeing a modest impact.St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego, California, posted a Facebook ad linking to Curry’s sermon for the 24 hours leading up to its 10:30 a.m. service on May 20. During the service, “I asked if anyone had come because of the sermon. Three young people in the back waved their hands,” St. Paul’s Dean Penny Bridges said in an email.“There was a very positive buzz among the congregation yesterday too, and people reported getting messages from non-churchgoing friends who were curious.” Some Episcopalians have been reacting to Curry’s sermon on social media by using the hashtag #proudEpiscopalian, and St. Bart’s Episcopal Church in New York is hoping the excitement will increase turnout at the congregation’s “Bring a Friend to Church Sunday” on June 3.“We are now developing messaging that encourages parishioners to invite friends who may have been inspired by Bishop Curry’s preaching on Saturday,” said Kara Flannery, the congregation’s director of communications.Two weeks earlier, Curry had spoken on discipleship at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Austin, Texas, the city where General Convention kicks off on July 5. So it seemed natural for the Rev. Morgan Allen, rector of Good Shepherd, to make Curry’s royal wedding sermon the focal point of his own sermon on May 20.“Wow, what a weekend to be Episcopalian!” Allen said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] May 23, 2018 at 11:24 pm I think it is counterproductive for any one person to decry another’s thoughts on a site like this. More importantly is to appreciate the love message Bishop Curry offered up. and to be grateful for the inclusive choices the newlyweds made as part of their commitment to their lives together. Inviting PB Curry to share the message of love, what he calls “the Jesus Movement” was a strong statement from the couple. They knew what to expect when they asked him to preach, and he delivered the message loudly and clearly.. I hope many also caught the wonderful part of the Anglican sacrament of marriage that includes God as an integral part of their union.

Perfect Pitch – IT presentations available for download

first_img Howard Lake | 5 December 2006 | News Tagged with: Technology David Barker of White Box Digital kicked off the presentations with examples of how the company has applied its work with leading B2B and B2C commercial brands to the charity sector. He demonstrated what the company had achieved with charities involved in homelessness and sexual abuse.His demonstration included playing a video that he had uploaded to YouTube as part of a ‘hidden homeless’ campaign to highlight the fact that not all homeless people had mental health or alcohol problems.Ben Belassie then explained how Generate Enterprise, a new Community Interest Company, was helping charities implement the powerful customer relationship management (CRM) tool from global database company Salesforce.com. The software is available as a free donation to charities from the Salesforce.com Foundation, and Belassie works to help charities customise it to their needs. Generate Enterprise is the sole implementation partner for this in the UK. Around the world 1,200 nonprofit organisations are using the tool.Polly Gowers of Everyclick shared the latest developments and opportunities from the search engine that donates 50% of its gross revenue to charities each month. The company had already teamed up with Charities Aid Foundation to enable site users to support any registered charity they chose, and they were planning to work with other providers such as Mission Fish (eBay for Charity).Charities could now make use of a customised marketing toolkit, with logos, banners, search boxes, and PR templates. There is also an income calculator allowing charities to estimate how much they might generate from Everyclick, depending on the number of supporters and corporate supporters they could reach.Indeed, the new search box tool is proving very effective. A school that added it to their intranet is now raising more than any other organisation on Everyclick. Hope and Aid Direct also report that they have raised 10% of their annual income just from supporters searching at Everyclick. They had found that promoting the giving option in their email signature had been particularly effective.Lou Cook of Giving Matters began the final section of the day announcing a major new website designed to offer supporters a wide variety of ways to give to charity, and indeed to any charity, large or small. She demonstrated ThirdSay, due to launch to the public soon, showing how visitors could search for a charity by name, activity or postcode, and then decide how to give.The site goes well beyond offering online credit/debit card donations. Charities can set up ‘products’ for sale, enabling them to have their very own ‘beneficiary gift’ catalogue. Supporters can set up their own page for their sponsored events. Charities can gather signatures for a petition, and use a range of other tools. Supporters can generate further income for their charity by shopping online from a growing range of suppliers whom ThirdSay, a registered charity, judge to meet ethical standards of business.As with other online credit/debit donations, there will be a small percentage levied, but otherwise the online fundraising tools are provided at no charge to any registered charity in England and Wales, with Scotland expected to follow.Jody Davidson of Blackbaud Europe then explained how charity and voluntary organisations could build an effective interactive website for their supporters. She began by explaining who was now online and what they now used the Internet for: users now spend 45% of their time online shopping and buying.Referring to the Nonprofit Industry Survey 2005, she reported that an estimated £15 billion had been donated online to nonprofits around the world and that this was expected to rise to £40 billion by 2008.She recommended that charities work to emulate the successes of online businesses who offer self-service tools online. It is these tools, applied to the donor environment, that will engage visitors and help generate loyalty.Christopher Torvald and Lauren Martin of LUUP ended the day with a demonstration of their mobile payments system.

‘Liters for Life’ student campaign raises funds for global water crisis

first_imgCamilla Pricehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/camilla-price/ ReddIt Twitter printThree Neeley Leadership Program students are fundraising for a nonprofit that wants to expand clean water access, and they’re asking for student support.Junior business students Hayden Hite, information systems and entrepreneurship double major; Brennan Holt, supply chain management and entrepreneurship double major; and Cassie Trosino, marketing major, founded Liters for Life as their impact project for the Neeley program based on a mutual interest in sustainability.The students are aiming to raise $50,000 for the nonprofit ‘charity: water’ before the fundraiser closes on June 30, the equivalent of giving access to clean water to 1,250 people. Since February, the campaign has raised more than $28,600.“I think ultimately having the interest and wanting to impact people was at the forefront of just this whole mission,” said Trosino.Hite and Holt said their personal experiences played into the decision to concentrate on water issues. The two studied abroad in Borneo last year, where they saw firsthand how local communities are impacted by changes in the environment.Read more: TCU students can prevent deforestation from palm oil“This all culminates in this idea that we as people in the United States or as people in First World countries have the power to, at least make a relative impact in our decisions and also in kind of how we decided to use our resources, whether that be connections or our network or even finances,” said Hite. “With that in mind, we kind of took all that energy and basically placed it into the water crisis.”Worldwide, more than 2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water and over half the global population lacks proper sanitation resources, according to the World Health Organization.COVID-19 has exacerbated problems in economic inequality, health care and education for people facing clean water scarcity.Taking on the water crisisLast spring, a professor recommended Holt read the book Thirst by Scott Harrison, the founder of charity: water. The book gave him a new perspective on the water crisis.“It’s really difficult for us to perceive the global water crisis when we’re here in the U.S. and we can go fill up our water bottle at five different faucets in our house, and so that book really brought it into light for me,” he said.Holt shared the book with Hite. Later, the issue of water returned when the students were considering their impact project for the Neeley Leadership Program.“I think we’ve each had our different experiences that drove us toward sustainability and then the water crisis was like a subset of that category,” Hite said.When the students began investigating the water crisis, they researched U.S. communities from Flint, Michigan to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but they found working on domestic problems did not work with their condensed timeframe.“A lot of those issues were really tied up in politics and legislation and regulatory issues, so we felt that to create the sustainable impact that we wanted, we might be better served going internationally,” said Holt. “We decided that partnering with an organization that already has the expertise and the infrastructure and the resources to really create that change that we’re looking for was going to be our best option. So that’s when we brought back in mind charity: water.”Choosing charity: waterThe Liters for Life campaign is donating all of its proceeds to charity: water, which the students chose for its transparency and wide-reaching impact.The nonprofit operates on a 100% model where 100% of every donation directly contributes to the construction of water projects in developing nations. All overhead costs are covered by private donors.All donors to the campaign will receive periodic updates and GPS locations of the project their dollars helped fund.“A huge selling point was being able to have complete trust in this organization that they’re going to take your money and do something great with it,” said Holt.Charity: water has funded water projects in 29 countries. (Photo courtesy charity: water)The students also stressed the long-term, tangible impact of the charity: water projects.“It’s not just water, it hinges on everything,” said Trosino. “The reason that we were all so moved by this specific organization that we’re working with is, not only are you supplying individuals in communities with access to clean water, but when they get that clean water, they’re getting opportunities for education if they’re young kids, women have greater opportunities for entrepreneurial endeavors, there’s independence that’s given to these communities that they never had before that we are able to pursue on a daily basis.”Charity: water partners with local communities to determine what water project program will best suit the area’s needs and teach community members how to operate and fix the installments.“We knew as a group we wanted to address an issue within sustainability, and I think sustainability to most people means the environment, but we realized that sustainability is all-encompassing,” said Hite.Moving forwardThe students describe Liters for Life as a way to force an awareness shift on their own circumstances and capabilities.“I think this project has really given us the platform and the realization of, we can make a change. And we’re already seeing that we have,” said Trosino. “And that for me is such a mindset shift moving forward that I’m going to approach problem-solving and looking to help people in a way of ‘Let’s do it’ instead of waiting for the perfect moment.” The students hope members of the TCU community can feel gratitude for the resources available to them after learning about Liters for Life.“You shouldn’t have to feel bad about going and filling up your water bottle, but you should just be aware that that’s a privilege that we have that millions of people across the world don’t have,” said Holt.They added that no contribution of time, energy or money toward helping others is too small.“It would be my hope that other students at TCU can look at what we’re doing and say, ‘That’s a group of people just like me. They’re the same age as me, they’re enrolled at the same university as me. I’m in their classes. They’re making a genuine positive impact on the world and I could do that as well,’” said Holt.

Edo Sule Ugbagwu, a court reporter for the daily The Nation, was gunned down in his Lagos home. Nathan S. Dabak, the deputy editor of the Protestant fortnightly Light Bearer, and Sunday Gyang Bwede, one of his reporters, were hacked to death in Jos, a city torn by sectarian violence.“These murders join the long list of cases of violence against journalists in recent years in Nigeria,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Guardian assistant news editor Bayo Ohu was gunned down in his Lagos home by intruders just seven months ago. We once against urge the authorities to shed light on the motives for these killings. It is vital that the investigators do not rule out any hypotheses.”Ugbagwu was shot in the head by armed intruders who forced their way into his home in the Lagos district of Sasha. His younger brother, who witnessed the shooting, told local journalists the gunmen deliberately shot Ugbagwu when he ordered them to leave his home. They left immediately afterwards.Dabak and Bwede were travelling to a meeting by motorcycle with their driver when all three were attacked by a group of machete-wielding youths who were angered by the murder of a fellow Muslim. Located in the centre of the country, Jos has experienced months of clashes between its Christian and Muslim communities, with journalists inevitably suffering the consequences.The police have said they are investigating both incidents but have not yet taken a position as regards the motives for these murders.Niger was ranked 135th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Ban on “DIY radio” in Bihar state illustrates unfairness of broadcast law

first_img to go further News News Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting Help by sharing this information March 29, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ban on “DIY radio” in Bihar state illustrates unfairness of broadcast law News News Reporters Without Borders expressed dismay at the closure of Radio Raghav FM Mansoorpur 1 under the Indian Telegraphs Act after the station, which its founder said he launched for less than a dollar, garnered international plaudits.The radio, in Mansoorpur in Bihar state in the north-east, was set up without a licence by 22-year-old Raghav Mahto, an electronic equipment repairman. It broadcast local news, information and music.”It is one thing to apply the law, but to forcibly close down a community-type radio is a sign of intransigence by the authorities over the emergence of pluralism on the airwaves,” the press freedom organisation said.”We believed the recent licensing of FM stations was an encouraging sign, but the closure of Radio Raghav FM Mansoorpur 1 underlines the fact that India was the last country in south Asia to accept independent news broadcasts on FM.””We urge the Bihar state government to grant this radio a temporary licence and the government in New Delhi to bring in an amendment on community radios.”The Bihar authorities shut down the radio on 26 March 2006, after the courts ruled that the station was violating the Indian Telegraphs Act. Police lodged a complaint against the founder and sole presenter, Raghav Mahto, and information ministry representatives seized his equipment.The action against Radio Raghav FM Mansoorpur 1 started in February after a series of articles appeared in the Indian and international press about the popular success of the FM station. On 24 February 2006, the BBC World Service posted a report on its website headlined “The amazing DIY village FM radio station”. Raghav Mahto told a reporter from the British radio that he had set up the station with less than a dollar.Founded in 2003, the station broadcasts music, educational programmes and local news over a range of about 20 kms around the village. Mahto told the press that he did not know that he was legally obliged to get a licence.The young artisan, who is seen as a hero in Mansoorpur, told a Times of India journalist: “I don’t have the money for the licence fee. I don’t even have the money for medical treatment of my father, who is suffering from cancer.” Follow the news on India RSF_en Organisation RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 February 23, 2021 Find out more IndiaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders has urged the regional government to grant a temporary licence to a small community radio, Radio Raghav FM Mansoorpur 1, broadcasting in Mansoorpur in the north-east of the country, closed by the authorities on 26 March 2006 after the courts ruled that it violated the Indian Telegraphs Act and police laid a complaint against its founder Raghav Mahto.

A Choice to Turn Things Around

first_img Community News Make a comment Photo courtesy Alex BoekelheideWhen Andrew Rocha started his first class in career counseling at PCC, he took it very seriously. He began his second stint as a PCC student coming back from a full-time retail job, in search of his future passion and ready to pour himself into his studies. When he read an occupational description of a career to design lasers as an optical engineer, he knew he wanted to go full-force into that area.It was a decision with some serious consequences. As a returning student, Andrew was in danger of exhausting his allotted six years of federal financial aid, especially if he hoped to transfer to a four-year university after community college. This meant that he would need to complete his time at PCC as quickly as possible as a full-time student. Without full-time employment and a steady income, his budget dwindled, and he found it hard to maintain his financial stability.When money got so tight that he was unable to afford rent, Andrew decided to move into his car to save money. This got him through a semester, but he couldn’t store food for any length of time, and he was constantly struggling to find new places to park his car every night, staying ahead of the police and wary homeowners. When the car began to develop serious mechanical problems, he knew he was in trouble. Already living at the limits of his comfort, he feared that losing his car would mean he would never achieve his dream of graduating college.It took a lot for Andrew to admit the reality of his situation. “I was always a prideful person,” he says. “I never wanted to ask for help.” When he finally did, though, he turned to PCC’s Dreamkeepers program.Dreamkeepers was started through a grant from Scholarship America in January 2011 as a way for students in need to receive financial support for emergencies. The program provides grants of up to $500 for non-academic expenses, offers additional services to help students build their long-term money management skills, and connects them to campus and community resources.“We’re here to help students keep their mind on their studies and achieve their educational goals,” says program administrator Carol Brown. “A financial emergency shouldn’t mean that you get completely thrown off the path to your degree.”Students in the program have to meet a certain number of requirements. They need to be taking a minimum of 6 units, and they have to have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00. There’s also a unit completion requirement, but Brown says that shouldn’t keep students from seeking help. “Students should talk with us before they think, ‘Oh, this program’s not going to work for me,’” she says.As a source of emergency assistance, grants from the program are paid directly to third parties, not to students. If a student’s car is in the shop, the mechanic will receive a check from Dreamkeepers to cover the expenses — sometimes as soon as 24 hours after the grant is approved. “We know students have a lot on their mind, especially when there’s a crisis. Dreamkeepers is a safe place to talk about it,” Brown says.For Andrew, the meeting with Dreamkeepers included a good dose of talk therapy. Fernando Serrano, the staffer who helped Andrew understand his options, “told me it was time to stop being prideful,” Andrew says. He documented his complete financial picture for Fernando — “bills, bank account, everything,” he says. He walked him through the problems with his car. The meeting took about an hour, and then Andrew waited for word of a solution.Fernando delivered in a big way. In addition to paying the mechanic’s bill, “he found me a place to park without being hassled, he found places to get food, and he connected me with other programs on campus that helped me out — little things that were available that I didn’t know about before,” Andrew says. Andrew started working with PCC’s MESA program, which provides tutoring and other assistance to disadvantaged students who are pursuing degrees in science and math.The Dreamkeepers boost was just what Andrew needed. Crisis averted, he focused on completing his PCC degree, eventually transferring to the University of Arizona, which houses one of the country’s best programs in optical engineering. He hopes to go on to earn his doctorate in optical sciences. For the past two summers, he has interned at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland as part of the Integrated Radio and Optical Communications project team developing new technologies to improve laser communications from distances beyond Mars. Financial aid grants, federal loans, scholarships, and a stipend from the internship have improved his financial situation as well. His basic needs are being met, and he rents a small apartment in Tucson.He’s also keeping the Dreamkeeper mission alive for the next generation of PCC students. When he spread the word about the program, other homeless students came out of the shadows to seek assistance and move beyond the damage to their pride. Andrew still advocates for a campus food bank and other services that will help those students who put their educational goals above all other priorities.To those that would come behind him, he has simple advice: “You have to look at everything you’ve gone through to get to this point, and you’ve still survived,” he says. “It doesn’t even matter what goes on around you, you’ll always have something to fight for.“You have a choice to turn things around.” Top of the News Your email address will not be published.
