Of the Top 11-25 firms, 83 per cent predicted more mergers in the industry are “fairly likely’, compared to half of those firms in 2009. The report found that those firms have seen their fee income decline by on average six per cent. Despite an eight per cent reduction in their partner numbers and a six per cent reduction in fee earner numbers, average profit per equity partner (PEP) still fell by nearly one per cent to £441,000. This follows a 28 per cent reduction in PEP in 2009. Top 10 firms were protected from the worst of the downturn by their scale and geographical reach. “Looking ahead, it appears the legal sector is approaching a tipping point,” said Alistair Rose, a partner at PwC. “There is ongoing pressure on firms ranked 11-25 and it is inevitable that a number will need to consider their response to ongoing, difficult market conditions, client pricing pressures and new entrants to the market.”Already this year Lovells has merged with Hogan Hartson, while Sonnenschein joined with Denton Wilde Sapte. Squire Sanders is in discussions with Hammonds and SJ Berwin with Proskauer Rose. Financial pressures might force others to consider link-ups, to avoid the fate of Halliwells, which collapsed in the summer, spooking investors. “The crunch time for law firms often comes in January when they have to pay their rent and their partner tax bill,” said Tony Williams of legal consultancy Jomati. “Some are being watched quite carefully by the banks.” center_img Tags: NULL Wednesday 3 November 2010 9:48 pm Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorymoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here Mathew Staver, the founder of Orlando-based Liberty Council will be speaking about current threats religious freedom in America in Apopka tomorrow.Staver and his organization have defended the religious liberty rights of hundreds of Americans.  Last year he represented Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to personally sign same-sex marriage licenses due to her sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage.He will be speaking at the 10:00 AM service at Victory Church World Outreach Center which is located at 509 South Park Avenue in Apopka.“This month at Victory Church we are focusing on issues and answers leading up to the election,” said Doug Bankson, Senior Pastor at Victory Church. “We are excited to have Mat come and speak at Victory, and all are welcome. Liberty Council is standing up for liberties all across the U.S. including most recently the defense of Chief Justice Roy Moore who has been unlawfully silenced for upholding the Alabama Constitution.Bankson went on to say, “In this climate of political correctness and moral ambiguity, people need to be informed not only of our rights but of the foundation of our law. Our democratic republic is based on the rule of law, which protects us from anarchy and mob rule. However most have lost the understanding of the foundation of western law, and that law itself has rules or boundaries that our founders understood and called “the laws of nature and natures God.” This knowledge both guides and restricts human law and protects our inalienable rights given by our Creator. As an expert on law, Mat will help bring light and understanding to not only our liberties, but our rights to defend that liberty.”Staver has a B.A. in Theology from Southern Missionary College, an M.A. in Religion from Andrews University, and a J.D. from the University of Kentucky. He has argued before the Supreme Court of the United States twice and has argued before most of the federal courts of appeals.Staver served as the Dean of the law school at Liberty University from 2006 to 2014.He founded Liberty Council in 1989.Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.

The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia

first_imgTuesday Nov 4, 2014 The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia The latest Barbarians have reinvigorated the brand by playing the type of rugby that fans have come to expect from the famous club. Against Australia they were inventive and fearless, as can be seen with this audacious long lineout throw by Steven Luatua.ADVERTISEMENTThe All Black wasn’t part of the squad over in Chicago, so he brought the USA to Twickenham, showing that he has a pretty decent quarterback throwing arm, even if it was a little skew.“He’s played a little bit of American Football at school, so he threw the ball like that at training and I said ‘Ah, you better bring that out’,” explained Barbarians coach John Kirwan.It’s his second outing for the BaaBaas, and after revealing that he’s a big NFL fan in training, they thought they’d give this a shot. The Wallabies were quick to react and the ball was dropped, but kudos to the side for trying something new.

IoF responds to Fundraising Preference Service proposals

first_img The Institute of Fundraising has argued that the Fundraising Preference Service should avoid the ‘total reset’ button option, and should be introduced in a phased manner.The Institute has published details of its response to the Fundraising Regulator’s final consultation on the Fundraising Preference Service’s model of operation, which opened last month and closed today.The working group of the Fundraising Preference Service, which was proposed in the 2015 report of the Etherington Review on fundraising self-regulation  first asked for feedback on its proposals in March 2016.In its response the Institute welcomed the improvements to the FPS model that had been made over the summer.It agreed with some of the model’s proposals including:signposts to MPS and TPSallowing an individual to be registered where there is an existing Power of Attorneyoffering a ‘small reset’ for individuals to be able to choose any specific charity(s) that they no longer want to hear fromHowever, it argued that, despite efforts to mitigate unintended consequences of the FPS, “the model proposed will have the inevitable outcome that, by pressing the ‘total reset’ button individuals will not give to charities that would have been happy to support as they will not be directly asked”.Consequently the Institute recommended a more nuanced approach, suggesting:“The FPS should be developed to be able to better account for an individual’s choices and preferences. People should be able to indicate whether they are happy or not to receive different forms of communication (email, text, post, phone)”.It added that “the need, value, and rationale for the service must now be reviewed before implementation and a proper impact assessment undertaken.”If, following such a review, there was felt to still be a need for the FPS “then we propose a phased approach”. This is the stage, the Institute suggests, at which a further service, such as the ‘total reset’, might be implemented.MyLetterboxAnother response to the FPS final proposals has been shared by Nigel Readhead, founder of, a service for donors that he describes as an early incarnation of the Fundraising Preference Service.He shares his response via LinkedIn, matching various sections of the Fundraising Regulator’s recommendations to his responses and commentary. By explaining how works, he tackles both processes and some of the reasoning behind the FPS’ proposals.He sees some serious drawbacks with the FPS’ recommendations. For example he argues at one point: Advertisement Howard Lake | 30 September 2016 | News Tagged with: Fundraising Preference Service Institute of Fundraising Law / policy regulation IoF responds to Fundraising Preference Service proposals “I do not believe this proposal has not [sic] been sufficiently thought through. Our experience of operating (which is an FPS) over 10 years has shown that our approach is (a) correct and (b) does not lead to donors falsely opting out or opting out when they did not mean to”.He concludes by questioning the scale of the proposed budget of the FPS, pointing out that his existing service could provide the service at one tenth of the cost:“This service has been offered to the new Fundraising Regulator to take over as the official FPS at a cost of just £350 per charity per year which is just 1/10th of the proposed cost suggested by the working group”.

USDA Offers Producers Options to Re-enroll or Extend Expiring CRP Contracts

first_img USDA Offers Producers Options to Re-enroll or Extend Expiring CRP Contracts Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Offers Producers Options to Re-enroll or Extend Expiring CRP Contracts By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 24, 2019 Farmers and ranchers with expiring Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts may now re-enroll in certain CRP continuous signup practices or, if eligible, select a one-year contract extension. USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) also is accepting offers from those who want to enroll for the first time in one of the country’s largest conservation programs. FSA’s 52nd signup for CRP runs from June 3 to August 23.“Agricultural producers with expiring CRP contracts have set aside land to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, provide habitat for wildlife and boost soil health for at least a decade,” said U.S. Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Bill Northey. “We want to make sure they – and their neighbors who may not have a CRP contract – know they have opportunities within CRP to continue their valuable contribution to our country’s conservation successes.”FSA stopped accepting offers last fall for the CRP continuous signup when 2014 Farm Bill authority expired. The 2018 Farm Bill reauthorized the program this past December, and FSA has carefully analyzed the bill’s language and determined that a limited signup prioritizing water-quality practices furthers conservation goals and makes sense for producers as FSA works to fully implement the program.This year’s CRP continuous signup includes such practices as grass waterways, filter strips, riparian buffers, wetland restoration and others. View a full list of practices approved for this signup.  Continuous signup enrollment contracts last for 10 to 15 years. Soil rental rates are set at 90 percent of 2018 rates. Incentive payments are not offered for these practices.Producers with Expiring CRP ContractsLetters are in the mail to all producers with expiring CRP contracts, describing possible options.A one-year extension is being offered to existing CRP participants with expiring CRP contracts of 14 years or less that have practices not eligible for re-enrollment under this CRP signup.Alternatively, producers with expiring contracts may have the option to enroll in the Transition Incentives Program, which provides two additional annual rental payments on the condition the land is sold or rented to a beginning farmer or rancher or a member of a socially disadvantaged group.CRP Continuous CREP SignupThis signup also enables producers to sign up under existing Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) agreements. CREP is part of CRP and targets high-priority conservation concerns identified by a state, and federal funds are supplemented with non-federal funds to address those concerns. Download this fact sheet to learn more.Other Future CRP Signup OptionsFSA is still planning a CRP general signup in December 2019, with a CRP Grasslands signup to follow. Those that extend their contracts may be eligible for one of these signup types or another continuous signup in the future.More InformationOn December 20, 2018, President Trump signed into law the 2018 Farm Bill, which provides support, certainty and stability to our nation’s farmers, ranchers and land stewards by enhancing farm support programs, improving crop insurance, maintaining disaster programs and promoting and supporting voluntary conservation. FSA is committed to implementing these changes as quickly and effectively as possible, and today’s updates are part of meeting that goal.Producers interested in applying for CRP continuous practices, including those under existing CREP agreements, or who want to extend their contract, should contact their USDA service center by August 23.

Pasadena Unified Names Magnet School Coordinator

first_img Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Superintendent Jon R. Gundry has announced that Pasadena High School (PHS) Assistant Principal Lori Touloumian will lead the management of a $7.9 million federal grant to create magnet schools at Washington Middle School, Eliot Middle School, Washington Accelerated Elementary School and Jackson Elementary School. As magnet school coordinator, Touloumian will be responsible for the implementation of the magnet program including student recruitment, budget oversight, planning, coordination and evaluation of programs that build the four schools’ capacity for effective and engaging instruction, monitoring of desegregation efforts, and assisting in the acquisition and utilization of instructional materials.“I am pleased that Ms. Touloumian will lead the magnet program and expand high-quality options in science, technology, dual language immersion and the performing arts for Pasadena area students and families,” said Gundry. “Her energy, leadership and high expectations for students and staff, along with her proven skills in school-based grant management, make her an ideal choice for this important position.Touloumian has served as assistant principal at PHS since 2011 where she supervised student activities, student leadership groups and served as the liaison for the school’s Safe and Supportive Schools grant. Previously, she was chair and co-chair of the school’s English department from 2007-2010. She began her tenure at PHS in 1999 teaching 10th and 11th grade regular and honors English courses. In addition to her work at PHS, Touloumian has also been an Upward Bound instructor at Pasadena City College since 2001.“I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the new Magnet Program Coordinator and look forward to working with the teams at Washington Middle School, Elliot Middle School, Washington Accelerated Elementary School, and Jackson Elementary School,” said Touloumian. “I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with a stellar team at Pasadena High School first as a teacher and department chair then as an administrator, an experience that I know will serve me well in years to come.”Earlier this fall, PUSD was awarded a $7.9 million three-year Magnet School Assistance Program (MSAP) grant to establish or expand magnets at four district schools that draw diverse students from throughout the community and expand public school choices for parents. Washington Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Magnet Middle School, which opened this fall, is one of the recipients of the grant. The grant will also support the STEM focus at Washington Accelerated Elementary, STEM and Spanish dual language immersion programs at Jackson Elementary and a new visual and performing arts magnet at Eliot Middle School. All four magnet schools will use project-based learning that is integrated with the new Common Core State Standards and 21stcentury learning skills. The grant is expected to benefit almost 7,000 students in the four schools over a three-year period.
