The only reason they’ve held up is interest rates are so low – when rates rise my gut feeling is a lot of people will chuck their keys away.”His remarks come amid growing fears of a second downturn in the housing market. Data from the Bank of England (BoE) this week showed mortgage lending fell to a four-month low in July. Economists expect the BoE to gradually raise its base rate from 0.5 per cent to around two per cent by the end of next year.However, Hargreaves said his greatest worry was the coalition shirking from the deep spending cuts outlined in June’s emergency Budget.Despite the bleak outlook, Hargreaves Lansdown raised its full-year profit before tax 18 per cent to £86.3m. Revenues rose 20 per cent to £159m as clients chased inflation-beating returns from their investments. The Bristol-based network paid a second special dividend of 1.7p, after March’s unexpected interim payment of 1.6p, both of which came on top of a regular payment of 8.58p.Hargreaves is replaced at the top by Ian Gorham, who joined in 2009 from Grant Thornton’s financial team.

Not all charities will be on the list as it is not yet a legal requirement to register with the Charity Commission. The list does show which organisations have registered with HM Revenue and Customs for tax purposes and are therefore subject to the Commission’s powers.To donate online to a particular charity, look for that charity’s website. Check that you have the right web address.Be very careful when responding to emails or clicking links on emails. Always check that emails are genuine by looking out for spelling mistakes or other signs that the email is not genuine. If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of a request for donations that appears to come from a charity, don’t hesitate to contact that charity directly.Check whether a collector has the authority to collect. A permit or license is usually required if raising money in a public place. These permits are obtained through the PSNI at present.Ask the collector how much of your donation goes to the charity. There’s no fixed rule about what percentage should be given to charity, but our advice is for people to ask what proportion of gross profit goes to the charity. This allows you to make an informed choice before you give.Ask the collector for more information about what donations will be used for. A genuine charity will understand that you may wish to know more and should be happy to answer questions.Check that the collection tin is sealed and that it is not damaged.If in doubt send your donation directly to the charity.It is always good practice for charities to tell you how much your money has been used after you have given through via emails, newsletter or other communications.If have a concern about a charity, you can contact the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and raise a about the operation of that charity.www.charitycommissionni.org.uk NI Charity commission issues giving guidance About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Organizing is in high gear for the National Conference to Defeat Austerity taking place March 24 in Detroit.Youth organizer Mond Jones told Workers World some of the perspective behind this important gathering, which will have an international focus: “Austerity is one of the concrete ways capitalism and white supremacy manifest themselves against the people. Austerity is a term used to describe policies that aim to reduce government deficits by budget cuts and tax hikes on the poor. These budget cuts attack things like education and public health first and foremost.“Every day in Detroit we see the effects of austerity in practice. We see it in the mass water shutoffs that have swept the city for years. Thousands of families lose water over petty delinquencies, while corporations rack up hundreds of thousands in unpaid water bills without penalty.“Detroit is under attack. But not just Detroit. We see the same austerity in Puerto Rico and all over the world. We see it anywhere there are oppressed people, anywhere the banks and the billionaires work together to line their pockets and keep workers under.”The conference will include a panel on the history of the deliberate targeting of Detroit by the banks and corporations because of its leading role in the Black liberation struggle as a result of the concentration of revolutionary African-American workers in the auto industry.A fightback agendaA highlight of the conference will be an international panel featuring Ricardo Santos Ramos, former president of the Electrical Industry and Irrigation Workers Union (UTIER) of Puerto Rico. The panel will also include talks on austerity and the struggle in Lebanon and Palestine, the Philippines and a report from Venezuela.Presentations will explain how austerity reflects the direct imposition of rule by finance capital to ensure its profits at the expense of wages, pensions and benefits for the working class. An analysis of the Trump tax plan and Pentagon war buildup, which will lead to the virtual destruction of what little remains of the social safety net, will be discussed.Workshops will be held on fighting water shutoffs; stopping foreclosures; education cuts; the Poor People’s Campaign; and the mass incarceration of youth and proliferation of prison labor. The Southern Workers Assembly will lead a workshop on the growing strikes and fightback by public workers, especially in the South, as witnessed in West Virginia with the teachers’ strike.A special workshop on understanding and reading financial instruments will be led by Maurice B.P. Drew, co-executive director of the Refund America Project, the preeminent organization studying Wall Street bond refinancing and extortion against the working class. RAP research has been used by organizations fighting the banks’ robbery in Detroit, Puerto Rico, Chicago and elsewhere.Action proposals will be on the agenda, including participation in the Poor People’s Campaign, May Day and demonstrations against the ongoing tax foreclosures and water shutoffs in Detroit.The conference will start March 24 at 10 a.m. at historic St. Matthew’s-St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church, 8850 Woodward Ave. Following that, there will be dinner and an evening of cultural presentations.

Ramiro Abad of the TCU Police says that a vast majority of these violations have been marijuana, which came as no surprise to students. “It’s not something that we want happening, but I would expect something like that,” said junior Gunnar Nystrom. “The world has started to get more progressive.”TCU isn’t the only school seeing these types of increases in marijuana use. According to a study from the University of Michigan, marijuana use among college students is the highest it’s been in the last three decades.“It could be today’s day and age,” said sophomore Shane Brundy. “[Students] want something to… de-stress.”In order to combat this trend, the TCU Police have added more officers and more frequent dorm checks.“I’ve seen more alcohol violations and drug violations,” said sophomore Josh Jackson. “And I have seen the TCU Police go into the dorms more.”Regardless of causes or effects, the fact remains that TCU is only one part of a growing trend nationwide.

EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Rounds Premium Burgers Wedding of Andrea and Ken. Photography by Sarah K. ChenTraditionalists would have you believe that burgers and weddings are so far apart from the “making sense” spectrum that to combine both is akin to wearing a clown suit to a funeral.Andrea Ament would have you think otherwise. You see, Ament got married last year and her caterer that day was none other than Rounds Burgers.Founded in 2011 by brothers George and Charbel Ghaby, Rounds Premium Burgers is a four-location restaurant mini-chain that offers a new twist on the classic American burger stand. The Pasadena location is on Lake Avenue just above Colorado Blvd.The whole idea of bringing in the Rounds Burgers truck to serve Ament’s wedding’s guests kicked off because of an issue with the reception venue.“The venue had a lot of fire instructions so we couldn’t risk bringing in a caterer,â€ says Ament, â€œThereâ€™s no kitchen. It’s a very outdoor venue, so I was thinking â€˜food trucks.â€™”Then Ament came across Rounds Burgers online, liked what she saw, and told her husband (to be), “This looks great!â€The couple decided to put Rounds to a taste test.Visiting a food truck event in North Hollywood, Ament and her husband went over to the Rounds truck. George Saade, the food truck owner, â€œwas just so nice!â€ she says. â€œHe gave us a sample of a couple of different burgers and fries,” explains Ament.What happened next was a revelation of sorts for Ament, who still is enthusiastic.“We were blown away by the burgers. Theyâ€™re delicious! Amazing, great ingredients,” she says.Thoroughly impressed, Ament and her husband (to be) told George, right there and then, â€œThe food is great. Let’s do this.” Details were finalized and the marriage of burgers and weddings was underway.The food truck was booked, and as the wedding date drew near, Ament’s husband drew a food truck on the invitations and guests were given little cards with a menu that said, as Ament explains, â€œ’Please pick a burger and your kind of friesâ€¦’ .”The approach was non-traditional, exactly what Ament wanted, but as word grew about the food truck at her wedding, many wanted to get invited just to experience Rounds Burgers at the wedding.“We actually had people ask, ‘Can you please invite us?’ A few people, I was like, ‘Youâ€™re a complete stranger, I canâ€™t’ ,” says Ament with a laugh.Ament adds that though wedding receptions traditionally have good food, it’s of the steak and salad variety.“It just kind of gets boring and itâ€™s not very memorable. But you have the Rounds Burgerâ€™s food truck and itâ€™s ‘Okay, this is different. This is fun. Itâ€™s a party.’”For a Food Truck to cater a wedding, it’s a testament how deliciously amazing Roundsâ€™ burgers are.
