The broker believes that M&A and mission creep fears have been over-discounted in the market, with the risks instead lying with changing regulation and agency costs. Citi likes Resolution’s low relative leverage and excess capital, and hangs its investment case around the firm’s potential value generation in restructuring UK life insurance companies.DOMINO’S PIZZAGoldman Sachs rates the pizza chain “buy” with a target price of 586p. The broker has lifted its forecasts after a recent trading statement, and now expects 60 new store openings a year compared with 55 a year previously. Goldman’s like-for-like sales growth forecast for 2011 is unchanged at 5.5 per cent. Risks to the firm include more competition and a further decline in Irish sales, the broker adds.HAMMERSONCollins Stewart rates the property firm “hold” with a target price of 470p. The broker expects the property market to be flat this year, with very little prospect of rental growth outside central London. The broker is impressed with Hammerson’s strategy but thinks it will be some time before the firm’s development programme contributes to the bottom line, and has reduced its pre-tax profit forecast by 1.5 per cent for 2011.

The cocos pay a generous coupon rate of seven per cent and have a conversion trigger – at which they turn into less desirable equity – set at a seven per cent core tier one capital ratio. That means if the bank’s capital ratio under Basel III falls below a seven per cent threshold, the coco’s convert.But Barclays is likely to have to maintain a ratio of at least ten per cent under rules being mulled by the Independent Commission on Banking, making the threshold effectively meaningless.The ABI has also advised members to consider Barclays’ revision of its performance-related pay metrics: execs are now to be paid 60 per cent of their long-term bonuses on the basis of returns on assets, with 30 per cent based on avoiding losses and 10 per cent on sustainability. This means more focus on returns over loss-avoidance than in the past.It also said that chief executive Bob Diamond’s pay packet might be unduly generous, being a 20 per cent increase on John Varley’s pay.

It listed on the New York Stock Exchange via an Initial Public Offering (IPO) yesterday. Demand for its shares was high – the stock finished up 40% on its first day of trading.Is this a growth stock I should consider for my own portfolio? Let’s take a look at the investment case.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…Coupang: business descriptionCoupang is a South Korean e-commerce company founded in 2010 by Korean-American billionaire Bom Suk. Nicknamed the ‘Amazon of South Korea,’ it has a large market share within the South Korean online shopping industry. Across the country, it has more than 100 fulfilment and logistics centers in over 30 cities. These allow the company to provide next-day delivery for orders placed before midnight.Coupang’s IPO price was set at $35. However, on the first day of trading, the stock closed at $49.25. At that share price, the company’s market capitalisation is around $84bn.The company has some notable backers, including Japanese investment giant SoftBank, US wealth management powerhouse BlackRock, and US venture capital firm Sequoia Capital. Can Coupang stock keep rising?Coupang’s recent growth has been impressive. For the year ended 31 December 2020, the company generated net revenue of about $12bn, up 91% year-on-year. This compares to growth of 55%, 69%, and 44% in 2019, 2018, and 2017 respectively. During 2020, it increased its market share significantly, from around 18% to just under 25%.It’s worth noting that South Korea’s e-commerce market, as a whole, is growing rapidly. According to Coupang, total e-commerce spend is expected to hit $206bn by 2024, up from $128bn in 2019. That represents annualised growth of about 10%. This market growth should provide tailwinds for the company going forward.RisksWhile this all sounds promising, I do have some concerns about Coupang stock. One is that the company is still unprofitable. Last year, the company lost about $475m. The year before, it lost about $700m. The company says it’s not certain whether or when it will achieve or maintain profitability. This adds risk to the investment case. That said, Amazon was unprofitable for years.Secondly, the company does have quite a bit of competition. Rivals include eBay-owned Gmarket, Naver Shopping, and WeMakePrice. Coupang says it faces “intense” competition and could lose market share if it doesn’t innovate.Third, the company has recently faced some criticism over working conditions for its employees. Labour groups in the country recently reported that a Coupang delivery driver in his 40s had died from overwork. This is an issue to keep an eye on.Finally, there’s the valuation. This looks quite high, in my view. Let’s say Coupang generates revenue growth of 65% this year (that’s my own estimate – I’ve used the average of the last four years’ growth to get to that figure). That equates to sales of about $20bn this year. That means the stock’s forward-looking price-to-sales ratio is about 4.2.By contrast, Amazon trades on a forward-looking price-to-sales of ratio of 3.3. Amazon isn’t growing as quickly as Coupang. But it is profitable and also has its high-growth cloud business.Coupang stock: my viewWeighing everything up, I’m going to keep Coupang on my watchlist for now. The company certainly looks interesting. However, at present, I think there are other stocks that are a better fit for my portfolio.

Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgYou can’t accidentally neck-roll an opponent and it’s not acceptable for this practice to continue, so I’m calling for an automatic yellow card on each and every occasion it occurs.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Soaring: Christian Wade scores against Worcester, one of his 14 Premiership tries this season (Getty) Williams, 40, played it beautifully, showing his skills but setting up tries for others, and he now hopes to play a part in the biggest game in Amman’s history – the Bowl final against Caerphilly on 16 April.He sustained a jaw fracture in the match and spent much of Saturday night at A&E, so all fingers crossed that he makes the final and gets what one presumes will be one last outing as a player at the home of Welsh rugby.Young at heart: Shane Williams is still shining on the junior club scene when work commitments allowRhys lightningStaying in Wales, Rhys Patchell made a spectacular return to action for the Scarlets, scoring two tries in their 26-10 defeat of Edinburgh.The fly-half hadn’t played since damaging ankle ligaments on New Year’s Day but he showed a terrific turn of pace when collecting Hadleigh Parkes’s pass in the fourth minute to set Scarlets on their way.His 16-point performance prompted talk of a possible Wales call for their summer tour, and conjecture that he could do a job at 12 for his country outside Dan Biggar or Sam Davies. Time will tell.Back with a bang: Rhys Patchell scores one of his two tries against Edinburgh (Huw Evans Agency)Pressing decisionAustralian referee Rohan Hoffmann has had his share of criticism, including being demoted after a poor performance in a Waratahs-Sharks game in 2015.But it seems the former Portugal fly-half was correct in his awarding of a bizarre try in the Crusaders-Western Force match in Christchurch.The Force had possession at a ruck on their try-line and with hands on top of the ball, which was behind the line. But Crusaders lock Luke Romano pounced on it and Hoffman gave the score.The law states that if the ball is on the ground a player must ‘press down’ on it, so holding the ball in your hands whilst it’s on the deck doesn’t constitute sufficient downward pressure to count as a ‘grounding’ of the ball.Tough but fair for the Force, who trailed 28-10 after Romano’s converted score and went on to lose 45-17.“You sure, ref?” Western Force players consult Rohan Hoffmann during their defeat in ChristchurchTHE SINNERSNeck painThere is refereeing inconsistency being applied to the neck roll – the dangerous clear-out at the ruck when a player is grasped around the neck and thrown aside.There were doubtless other examples at the weekend but let’s highlight two: Blues back-row Jimmy Tupou did a neck roll on Bulls’ Jesse Kriel while Saracens’ Jackson Wray did likewise on his outstanding Bath adversary Francois Louw.Nic Berry yellow-carded Tupou but Wayne Barnes let Wray remain, and I know which response I preferred.Doing time: Blues’ Jimmy Tupou sits in the sin-bin after his neck-roll offence against the Bulls in Auckland (Getty)It’s approaching two years since World Rugby demanded a crackdown on neck rolls and that’s plenty of time for players to have adapted. TAGS: Highlight THE SAINTSHeinz catch-upThe sun came out at the weekend and the players captured the mood, with a number of belting tries.Cardiff Blues scrum-half Tomas Williams was twice on the end of sweeping length-of-field counter-attacks at Leinster, while Alex Goode’s try against Bath began when he gave Ben Tapuai the slip in his own 22 and featured a glorious one-two between Chris Ashton and Richard Wigglesworth.But a personal favourite has to be the Jonny May try at Bristol on Friday night, because it started with Willi Heinz only just preventing the ball going dead at the back of his own in-goal area.Scrambling back, the Gloucester captain kept the ball alive and set off on a counter. He passed to Tom Marshall, who put England wing May away down the left for a try scored with the clock showing red.It brought Gloucester a bonus point – and who knows how important that might prove to be?Cherry on top: Jonny May (left) celebrates his late try with Gloucester team-mate Charlie SharplesChristian soldiers onBristol lost that one 32-14 and their Aviva Premiership status hangs by a frayed thread.On a weekend when they would have expected to close the gap on Worcester at the bottom of the Premiership, they instead saw it increase to nine points after Worcester commendably picked up two bonus points at Wasps, despite losing Bryce Heem to a red card just after half-time.A fine effort by Warriors and well done, too, to Wasps for clinching a semi-final berth before April has arrived.Nasty fall: Bryce Heem was sent off for causing Willie le Roux’s painful landing at the Ricoh (Getty)Christian Wade scored two tries, the first a typically slithery effort when several Worcester players failed to bring home down, and he looks to have the Premiership’s top try-scorer award sewn up.He’s on 14 for the season, four clear of James Short and Semesa Rokoduguni, and if he stays top of the pile it will be the first time he’s won that accolade outright, having tied with Tom Varndell in 2012-13.Head held highYou could see just how popular Aaron Mauger is with the Leicester players in their pulsating 36-31 win at Northampton.The Tigers players hung in there during a difficult first period when Saints scored three tries and edged home via Owen Williams’s two late penalties.When the final whistle sounded, the hugs for Mauger told the story and the New Zealander – turfed out to make way for the return of another popular figure, Matt O’Connor – departs with Leicester in the play-off positions and with the Anglo-Welsh Cup in the trophy cabinet.Parting gift: Aaron Mauger, Tigers’ departing DoR, with the Anglo-Welsh Cup (CameraSport/Getty)One more dream for ShaneShane Williams played 49 Test matches at the Millennium Stadium (now Principality Stadium) during his scintillating Wales career, but potentially he faces one more visit that could just be the most special of them all.The wing wizard came off the bench – replacing his brother-in-law Gavin Lewis after 18 minutes – to help Amman United beat Cardigan 29-3 in the WRU National Bowl semi-final at Lampeter. Wing wonders Christian Wade and Shane Williams hog the limelight, an apt send-off for departing Tigers boss Aaron Mauger and time to get tougher on the neck roll LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Presiding Bishop urges the Church to ‘wake up’

There are thousands of us signed on, worldwide, for a time of focused prayer from May 25th to June 4th (Pentecost) for those who do are not yet believers to come to know Jesus. There are great resources at this movement’s website. Terry Francis says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI John E. Kitagawa says: Sarah Rachel says: Dr. William A. Flint, MDiv, PhD says: May 18, 2017 at 1:16 pm Obviously evangelism is important to the “Jesus Movement,” but respectfully, the Presiding Bishop is misrepresenting the message of our Lord by stating that ending racism and the care of God’s creation are the roots of the Jesus Movement . As to ending racism, that (along with ending many other forms of irrationally hateful behavior) would be a natural consequence of spreading all of the teachings and Gospel of Jesus. But it is not any part of Jesus’ teaching that his followers must try to end racial prejudice on earth if they ever hope to gain the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary His message was that we are NOT to focus on matters of this world but on our place in the world to come by living our lives here in a Godly manner and so –by our example– persuading others to live in this way as well. The Rev Bishop and the Church will never end racism by lecturing people about it or by lobbying for more laws. Such change will only come when people are awakened to ALL of the teachings of Jesus and their hearts are changed thereby. As far as the care of God’s creation –does the Bishop truly believe that Jesus called on his followers to protect God’s creation from destruction by mankind? It is well within God’s power to protect his creation against any force devised by mankind –including so-called “global warming”. Whether it takes a millennia or a millennia of millennia–God’s creation will heal itself and remove any trace of any damage caused by man. It is the epitome of hubris to believe otherwise. God does not need the Bishop or the Church to help Him protect His creation. However, what is not within God’s power is control over the free will of men. Therefore God does need our help and efforts to enlighten others and open their hearts to all of the words of Jesus. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Belleville, IL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY May 22, 2017 at 10:59 am Anglican tradition is one of free thinking and expression. The problem in the Episcopal Church is it tries to silence opposition to its progressive agenda. Seems that our parishes are losing members right and left and the Mega Churches are growing beyond their capacity to accommodate their new members. To be in the Jesus Movement means one must make a personal decision and commitment to follow Jesus, making LOVE primary in their lives. LOVE is a hard and difficult thing to do. There is nothing wrong with hoping for the Separation of Church & State as long as faithful people are involved in both. One cannot hope to change the world by changing society, one can only hope that the world will change as God changes human hearts as those are come to Him through Jesus, His Son. I love this Church and will not be silent as it waste away.

It appears that many of his flock are to busy hating Trump to love Jesus. That would require them to love Trump just a Jesus loves them. I wonder what success the Presiding Bishop will have?It’s a good thing that SALVATION belongs to GOD and not the Church. Thanks be to God! Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA May 18, 2017 at 4:02 pm Original sin was in fact the blaming of God for human decisions. Remember, God ask the man; “How do you know you are naked? Did you eat of the tree I told you not too?” The man answered; “The woman YOU created, gave me the fruit and I ate it.” The woman replied; “The serpent YOU created tricked me and I did eat.” The point is instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, they blamed God. When we fail to be responsible and blame God or anyone or thing other than ourselves, we commit the ORIGINAL SIN all over again. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Collierville, TN May 15, 2017 at 7:54 pm In reference to the Jackie Robinson story, we must also remember Jackie’s teammate, a Kentucky born shortstop known as “Pee Wee” Reese. Quoting Colbert I. King in his Washington Post article many years ago: “[The story] took place in Cincinnati during a game in which Jackie Robinson was having an especially hellish time. The stadium scene was ugly, and Robinson, true to his pact with Dodgers owner Branch Rickey, couldn’t fight back. He was standing on the field just taking it from the fans and the opposing dugout. As the abuse mounted, the Dodgers’ captain, Pee Wee Reese, walked over to second base and put his arm over Jackie’s shoulder, showing the crowd where he stood.”King goes on to say:“Robinson’s place in history is secure. He was a fighter, a pioneer, a believer. He stood tall. Robinson remains an inspiration for generations to come. But Pee Wee Reese deserves more than an honorable mention too. In a way, he served us too, by becoming a living lesson of how we should behave.”The Jesus movement is made up of many individuals playing their part to help us know the Kingdom of God is at hand.

Photo: Randall Gornowich[Diocese of Maryland] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry returned to his old stomping grounds in the Diocese of Maryland, bringing an inspiring message and encouraging Episcopalians to claim their role as members of the Jesus Movement.“’Heaven help the devil if the Episcopal Church ever wakes up,’” he said, quoting the famed 20th-century evangelist, Billy Sunday. “Wake up, Episcopal Church. That’s what the Jesus Movement is all about.”Curry, who served as rector of St. James in Baltimore for 12 years, has been calling for a new period of evangelism within the church since being elected in 2015. This effort also includes a desire for the Episcopal Church to address some of the systemic race and class issues that plague American society.“We need to find a way for the grace of God to bear on the deeply rooted system of sin that mires us in a quagmire of racism,” he said. Racial reconciliation, evangelism and the care of God’s creation are the roots of the Jesus Movement for the presiding bishop.This week Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, will launch a churchwide program aimed at encouraging racial reconciliation. It is called, “Becoming Beloved Community: The Episcopal Church’s Long-term Commitment to Racial Healing, Reconciliation and Justice.” An introductory webinar is set for May 16.The program is the result of a year’s worth of listening sessions, consulting and reflection. It began with the passage of Resolution C019 at the 2015 General Convention, which called for the House of Bishops and House of Deputies to create a vision for addressing racial injustice. The convention also budgeted $2 million to make the plan a reality.Success in the drive for reconciliation will depend in large part on building relationships, said Curry.“Deep down in the bowels of our racial dilemma is the truth that we really don’t know each other,” he said. “Racism has a field day with that because that’s where we get into stereotypes, and one of the ways you get out of that is to get people to engage in real relationships.”During his Maryland visit, Curry gave a brief morning talk at the 233rd Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, squeezed in a couple of interviews, and preached to a nearly filled auditorium on the campus of Goucher College in Towson.The evening event, known as “The Big Tent Meeting,” gave him a chance to have a little fun with the perceived reluctance of Episcopalians to engage in evangelism. He built his sermon around Acts 1:8 and brought in other biblical citations such as Isaiah 43:10-12. Then he brought the message closer to home, quoting from the baptismal liturgy and the catechism in The Book of Common Prayer.“The truth I really do believe is that we need witnesses, and not just witnesses in the abstract,” he said. “We need evangelists to witness to a way of being Christian that reflects the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth.”Curry used his love of baseball to find a surprising illustration of the sometimes subtle, yet powerful ways witnessing to the gospel has influenced public life. Apparently, Branch Rickey, the famed executive of the Brooklyn Dodgers, used the Beatitudes and other teachings of Jesus Christ to help Jackie Robinson find ways to withstand the insults that would come when Robinson integrated the major leagues on April 15, 1947.“They changed major league baseball following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth,” Curry said. “Be not afraid and be not ashamed to be Christians who are known by love, justice and forgiveness.”During an earlier interview, Curry noted that part of his passion for proclaiming the Jesus Movement was born out of his own reflections and a desire to help people develop a richer spiritual life. Bible study is key to making that happen, he said, adding that in the current world of social media, the study need not be done face to face. But the study must happen.“It’s kind of like the Emmaus Road,” he said. “Have a conversation and Jesus will show up.”Curry also said that as the Church claims its role as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, it also will find an ongoing role in the public square.“We are not entering the political realm as partisans, but to lift up the values we have as Christians,” he said. “Jesus died in the real world because he dared to take the values of the Kingdom of God and live them.”-The Rev. M. Dion Thompson, a priest in the Diocese of Maryland, is a former reporter for The Baltimore Sun newspaper.

Rector Pittsburgh, PA May 21, 2017 at 5:50 pm Well said Ronald.The article is labeled as a message of racial unity, which every Christian supports. So why do I see many members posting negative comments? I believe these comments reflect the damage that has been done by the post-election political activism of the leadership which has divided congregations and driven away members. It is not the membership but the leaders who need to “wake up.” Bishops and many pastors seem to be mired in the third stage of denial:1) denial that there is a problem;2) denial that there is a big problem; and3) denial that the problem has anything to do with them.The PB’s concluding message to “take the values of the Kingdom of God and live them” is inspiring and is the true message of Jesus Christ. But for me, this message was undermined by the subtle call for members to take a “role in the public square.” I remain unpersuaded that Jesus was political. Merely rebranding the Church’s “social justice” agenda as the “Jesus Movement,” and proclaiming that the Church does not engage in partisan politics, cannot camouflage the fact that the Church adopts and advocates only leftist causes. I have seen no ENS published report of bishops and clergy publicly denouncing the violence and riots that have followed the call for “resistance.” I have yet to see a post-election proclamation from a diocesan convention or a “statement of bishops” which supports jobs for citizens, fixing our crumbling infrastructure, or relief from job killing governmental regulations and taxes. The budget of my local Diocese allocates $1.5 million to support Syrian refugees and promote a Sanctuary Diocese, but includes no funds for outreach programs to help our veterans and their families. I am not schooled in liberal versus orthodox interpretations of the New Testament, but it seems to me that combining the message of Jesus with partisan political activism–whether liberal or conservative–is an attempt to build a Kingdom that depends not on God, but on winning elections and destroying your enemies. I believe that the caution from scripture and history is to avoid advocating a political stance as God’s position, and to be particularly cautious when cozying up to politicians and adopting the partisan agendas of non-believers. As Abraham Lincoln noted in a time of war: “We need to pray that we are on God’s side, rather than claim that God is on our side! God’s care embraces the whole earth, including our nation’s enemies.” God is in control of the world: not Trump, not Putin, not Congress, and not the Republican and Democratic Parties. I believe that it is better to preach members how to live a righteous life and then trust in God rather than the bullhorn.

I haven’t noticed anyone being hurt by him. I do see a lot of damage being done by leftist rioting and destroying property belonging to others. Trump didn’t cause that. Looks to me Trump is accomplishing a great deal that the former President couldn’t. He is being recognized by other nations as a better President than Obama, that certainly isn’t hurting anyone. It is time to get over the election, Trump is the President of the United States. Give them the man your prayers and a chance to accomplish the good in what he does. Dave Wynne says: May 15, 2017 at 4:12 pm The Presiding Bishop is indeed waking up the Episcopal Church, enlisting it and us in the Jesus Movement…out of our buildings and onto that Road to Emmaus. Ah, Emmaus. Breaking bread together, we will recognize Jesus. Lead on, Michael. May 16, 2017 at 4:08 pm Many folks have posted the need for reconciliation. Good stuff. Yet Sunday is the most segregated day in America.As a body of faith, should we not spend some time wondering about new parishes? About new members?Will folks of color (or anybody else) join us because we say we’re sorry, or because we light up the place on Sundays?What did your parish do this week to grow beyond current membership? How many folks within a rifle shot of your parish are unchurched, or are lonely with a deployed spouse, or are hurting spiritually?It’s not an ‘instead of’ choice, but we need to reverse our decline in membership or our statements of reconciliation come from a corpse.

Tate, III says: May 18, 2017 at 1:33 pm I think it is not so much about hating Trump but hating the acts he has done. I agree we should love him as Jesus did but as Jesus loves us he hates the sins we commit. I pray for Trump and all the people he is hurting by his actions, and I keep believing Jesus has the last word. I know my church pray for Trump asking God to guide his actions and I am an Episcopalian who knows that change will only come as Bishop Curry said, when we act like Jesus no matter the situation.

How to make sure your fundraising videos are accessible: approaches and tips from the experts

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Accessibility should be front of mind with everything we do, and with video key considerations of course include ensuring support for those with sight and hearing loss such as subtitles and audio description. There is more to consider and include than that however, so here are some approaches and tips from the experts. Tagged with: accessibility video 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 “The WCAG 2.1 guidelines also recommend that video publishers should, wherever possible, provide transcripts. Ideally the transcript, should be descriptive, not just verbatim, to further improve accessibility.  1,344 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Case study: WaterAid Chris Parsons, Chief Executive of SubText Digital says considering accessibility should be the norm: “Think about this as the norm, not as an add on. Think about this all the way through creating a video, to the point of when you’re putting elements on screen, don’t make it impossible for the subtitles to go on without obscuring other elements. Accessibility needs to be built in through the creative process. Most charities when fundraising will be putting together creative in advance to get the message across, so you’ve got that time to add those layers of accessibility.” “If it’s a talking heads video that already has a narration you can’t then have an audio description saying, ‘the narrator has a blue sweater etc…’. So what we tend to do here is to add a visual description where applicable within the YouTube description in addition to describing what the video is about, so for example: ‘the video shows young woman with long hair holding a large book. She sits in a plush blue lounge with an old photograph of Thomas Pocklington in a gilded frame above the mantelpiece. “We want our films to reach our audiences in a way that is accessible for everyone, so we’ll continue to improve our accessibility features on our films and we are very open to suggestions on how we could improve.” As well as making videos accessible to as wide an audience as possible, there is another potential benefit for charities. Recent research by SubText Digital found that over 50% of 18-34 year olds say they would be more likely to donate to a charity that used subtitles in its advertising. Penny Wilkinson, Head of Communications, Thomas Pocklington Trust explains how it does this: At RNIB, she says: “As a rule, you should have no more than three flashes of light in a one second period. This helps to ensure that your video content doesn’t present a risk for people who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy. Supporting blind and partially sighted people, accessibility is always front of mind for Thomas Pocklington Trust.  It makes sure all its videos are audio-led. “For people who communicate primarily in sign language captions don’t always suffice. Some people find it harder to read and understand text at the rate it is presented in captions. That’s why it’s best practice to include a sign language feed. But if you incorporate a sign language interpreter into your videos, make sure the video has the functionality to be played at full screen so they can be seen.” “And, when you use colour in your videos, which most videos do, the colours used need to be distinguishable. There are standards set by the WCAG 2.1 for how distinguishable colours should be, known as their contrast ratio. For any typography on screen, including subtitles, an appropriate contrast ratio is essential for people to comprehend what is being presented.” Produce videos that don’t rely just on visuals to communicate the story.Avoid juxtaposing visuals with contrasting audio: both elements should follow the same narrative.Factual information in graphics, charts and statistics, must be communicated verbally in addition to on-screen text.Use good colour contrast for graphics, icons and other textUse some form of audio description – either have a separate audio track describing what is happening on-screen (traditional Audio Description) or use the narration or dialogue to tell a story that matches the visuals (integrated description).Ask interviewees to introduce themselves to avoid the use of on-screen graphics alone to communicate their names and titles.Make sure ambient sound or background music doesn’t drown out speech. Andrew Horton, Online News and Film Editor at Tearfund, also highlights The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (known as WCAG 2.1). These are an internationally recognised set of recommendations for improving website accessibility. As the majority of videos are viewed online, these principles also cover video content, and Tearfund is implementing these in its latest Video Brand Guidelines. It has also worked to make its new website, launched in December last year, achieve an AA classification for excellent accessibility. In addition to audio description, Horton recommends six other key areas to consider when creating fundraising videos: subtitles, contrast ratios, flashing content, copy, transcripts, and sign language. Melanie May | 21 April 2021 | News Integrated description is when you make your AV content naturally descriptive. For instance, using the dialogue or narration rather than images to tell the story, and utilising ambient sound or sound effects and music cues to establish action and scene change. “The idea is that blind or partially sighted people can then understand what people would see in a video, even though they might only be hearing it. We also put in a transcript, which can be read out with software for blind and partially sighted people such as Jaws, or printed out using Braille. All of our videos have captions, transcript, visual description, and they’re audio led.” Melville’s list of AV content ‘musts’ are: “Where possible use plain English at all times for copy, in both subtitles and on-screen typography. Keep sentences short and don’t use words and phrases people won’t recognise. You may need to provide an explanation if you can’t avoid this. Also make sure your copy is large enough to read and on screen for long enough for it to be digested easily. “Another important aspect of accessibility for us is the representation of a diverse range of people in our films. It can be a huge barrier for someone to not see people they identify with being featured in our films, so we strive to make sure everyone feels represented across our film channels’ output. Tadg O’Keeffe, Film Producer, WaterAid, explains in-depth WaterAid’s approach to accessibility in video. And, while accessibility due to deafness or hearing loss is a key reason why people might want subtitles in particular, they have a wider use with many using them to help understand accents, decipher mumbling or to prevent disturbing other members of the household and neighbours. Advertisement “On social media the majority of videos are watched with the sound off, primarily due to the use of auto-play as a standard for newsfeeds. While this is a good reason to use subtitles in your videos, there are other accessibility advantages. Subtitles are helpful for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Another reason is to improve accessibility for people who are not familiar with the language being spoken in the video. Top tips for making your fundraising videos accessible In contrast, traditional audio description is an additional audio track that verbally describes on-screen elements that do not have an audio clue, such as on-screen action, physical description of characters, locations, costumes, body language and facial expressions. This fits between the dialogues and should not encroach on important or critical sound effects unless necessary. “When deciding what to describe, always prioritise what would add to the viewing experience of someone with sight loss and try not to interrupt the ‘flow’ of the narrative with too much AD. This could include: key features in characters and change of scene or location. Remember too that subtitles or on-screen text must be read out in audio description unless integrated into the original script of the video.” Horton also advises caution with flashing lights, as well as using plain English for subtitles and on-screen typography, providing a descriptive transcript, and including a sign language feed. “Because our work is very international, we often produce multiple language versions of films, in English, French and Portuguese, either by recording multiple voiceovers, or by providing multiple subtitled versions. This drastically increases the reach of some of our films, removing the language barrier to many non-English speakers. “Due to the international nature of our work, most of our filmed interviews are in languages other than English, so it’s standard practice that we create subtitled versions of our films for an English speaking audience. However, we also subtitle English spoken interviews and voiceovers, to make sure all our films are accessible for people with hearing loss. An example of this was our recent film of a Sand Portrait on Whitby Beach narrated by Nadiya Hussain. “In terms of accessibility, it’s so important that the films we produce at WaterAid can be accessed by as diverse an audience as possible. “Some areas of WaterAid’s work are very complex and technical, but we try to make sure our films are as clear and concise as possible. This is particularly apparent with our content aimed at school children, but this approach also has a wider impact for anyone who might find complex messaging inaccessible. “YouTube has recently also introduced an Audio Description function to its platform, which we’re keen to explore to improve access to our films for people with vision loss. Previously we’ve uploaded transcripts of films to the YouTube description box, meaning people with vision loss are able to use text-to-speech software to know what is happening in the film, but this audio description feature will be a big improvement. How to make sure your fundraising videos are accessible: approaches and tips from the experts “We always try to use integrated description but if that’s not possible, for example if there is onscreen action but no available descriptive audio, then we use traditional AD. Wherever possible, try to describe at the same time as action occurs and where gaps in dialogue occur naturally. He says: Fiona Melville, RNIB Digital Content Producer – Film and Audio, says the most important thing to remember is that it should always be possible to understand the audio visual (AV) content just by listening. This means using either integrated description, or traditional audio description (AD).last_img read more

TCU flu clinic runs out of 3,000 vaccines before noon

first_imgLinkedin Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Twitter Facebook ReddIt Lauren Crawford printJunior Sydney Padden gets her flu shot. (Photo by Lauren Crawford.)The annual TCU flu clinic ran out of vaccines by 11:15 this morning after administering 3,000 of the shots to students, staff and faculty.The clinic was supposed to run until 4 p.m. Wednesday but closed after running out of vaccines. The quick run time of the clinic was due in part to fewer shots being offered after TCU gave out 1,000 shots earlier this semester to help combat an early outbreak of the flu.Every flu season is different and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they do not know ahead of time when they are going to start to see flu circulation. Health officials said it is impossible to predict what kind of influenza season to expect in 2017-18.Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. The CDC said these antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.Junior Sydney Padden received her vaccine Wednesday morning and said she gets her shot every year.“I was not nervous because it doesn’t hurt at all and TCU makes it so easy,” Padden said. “The process was very easy and very quick. I was very happy with the service I received.”Senior nursing student, Danika Cline helped give out the vaccines and encouraged people to get their shot.“Everyone should get vaccinated each year for a vaccinated person’s immunity usually declines after a year,” Cline said. “One thing to note for the 2017-18 year is that the live attenuated influenza vaccine/nasal spray vaccine is not recommended because it is not very effective.”The CDC also recommends the use of injectable influenza vaccines as opposed to the nasal spray flu vaccine.Cline and other senior nursing students recommend that a good time to get vaccinated is usually September-November, but suggest to go anytime the shot becomes available in the community, preferably before it spreads as well.The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions, like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent hand washing, to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses, like flu. Lauren Crawford is majoring in News and Media Studies and minoring in Business in hopes of working in the broadcast industry covering local news or sports.She has gained experience working in the sports industry while interning for 247 Sports covering, interviewing, and working with highly recruited high school and TCU athletes. While interning for 247 Sports, Lauren attended press conferences, interviewed TCU’s top recruited football players, and represented 247 Sports at events such as Big 12 Media Days. She holds multiple leadership roles at TCU such as being a member of Student Foundation and serving as Vice President of Membership of Pi Beta Phi Sorority. Lauren describes herself best in 3 words – persistent, passionate, and personable. She believes in order to be truly successful at something you must love what you’re doing, have passion for your goals, and have the mindset of always striving for improvement.

It would serve as a national expression of grief so needed by everyone in our country.”There have been 93,061 deaths in the U.S., according to figures released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Speaking at a virtual fundraiser April 29, former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee said, “I’ve suggested the president should lower the flag to half-mast, honoring all those people — particularly those first responders, those doctors, those nurses — those folks who went in without the PPP, the protective equipment, and still did their job.
