This would have added to your total return and provided fresh cash to buy more shares.When I would sell in a stock market crashOf course, there is one exception to this rule. If you realise that you own shares in a company that’s probably going to go bust, it makes sense to sell.In my experience, there are two main reasons why companies fail.A bad business: For some reason, the business itself has gone bad. Maybe the company’s business model has failed. Or perhaps a fraud has been uncovered.A bad balance sheet: The second reason why I’d sell during a crash is if a company is in serious financial distress. This most often happens when a business has too much debt and cannot find anyone to refinance it.In my experience, bad balance sheets often belong to bad businesses. If you find yourself invested in one of these, the best thing to do is to get out. Lesson learned.Patience will win outBut if you’re invested in good companies with sensible finances, then I believe you should hold on to your shares during a stock market crash. Buy more, if you can.

Carol Reese es capellana y coordinadora de prevención de violencia en el hospital John H. Stroger Jr. del condado de Cook. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Chicago, Illinois] En el Hospital John H. Stroger Jr. del condado de Cook funciona una de los centros de trauma más atareados del país. El hospital de Chicago tiene centenares de médicos titulares, residentes y becarios en su personal, pero sólo una empleada con el título de coordinadora de prevención de violencia y la palabra “capellana” en su placa distintiva.Muchos de los pacientes de la Rda. Carol Reese se enfrentan a una crisis de fe tanto como a una crisis de salud, especialmente adolescentes heridos en balaceras.“Esos chicos están intentando aferrarse a cualquier atisbo de esperanza en la vida que puedan tener”, dijo Reese, de 60 años y sacerdote episcopal, en una entrevista el mes pasado en el hospital. “A algunos de ellos les ayuda su fe. A otros les queda [la fe] muy afectada en medio de todo esto”.Reese compartirá sus ideas sobre las comunidades traumatizadas por la violencia armada y sus enfoques de salud pública para la reducción de la violencia en un foro que tendrá lugar esta semana en Chicago auspiciado por Obispos Unidos Contra la Violencia Armada [con el título de]. “Impía trinidad: la convergencia del racismo, la pobreza y la violencia armada” que tiene lugar en la Escuela Luterana de Teología del 20 al 22 de abril en Hyde Park.Reese ve de primera mano la convergencia de esta impía trinidad en el hospital y como directora del programa Healing Hurt People-Chicago, una asociación del hospital y la universidad que estudia los modos de mantener a salvo a los adolescentes al tiempo que trabaja con víctimas jóvenes mientras se recuperan y regresan a sus barrios.La violencia armada ha aumentado en Chicago en los últimos años. La ciudad, la tercera más grande de la nación, registró más de 4.300 tiroteos en 2016 y el mayor número de homicidios en EE.UU.“La violencia armada es un problema que trasciende todo tipo de fronteras”, le dijo a ENS el obispo diocesano de Chicago Jeffrey Lee en una entrevista telefónica. Viendo esto como algo más que un problema urbano o rural, un problema blanco o negro, un problema conservador o liberal, dijo Lee, los obispos quieren comprometer a personas de todas partes del debate en establecer un terreno común.“Queremos traer a personas de toda una variedad de puntos de vista en torno a aquello en podamos convenir”, dijo Lee, señalando las potenciales áreas de consenso en una legislación razonable sobre las armas de fuego y medidas contra las armas ilegales.El centro de trauma del hospital Stroger trató 900 heridas de bala en 2015, el último año en la contabilización de este dato, y Reese dijo que la unidad trata a unos 10.000 menores y adultos al año.Al igual que la atención médica, la atención espiritual se necesita constantemente. Un caso típico puede ser el de un adolescente aferrándose a la vida y la familia y los amigos enfrentándose a sus propios traumas emocionales y sentimientos de culpa por no haber hecho más para proteger a la víctima, explicó Reese. Ella orienta a las víctimas y a sus seres queridos mientras se enfrentan con interrogantes existenciales: ¿Por qué me sucedió esto a mí? ¿Qué hice para merecer esto?“La esencia misma de esto, creo yo, es la manera en que las personas cobran conciencia de lo que les ha ocurrido, particularmente a la luz de un evento traumático”, dijo Reese. Se trata de dejar que la gente explore estas interrogantes en un ambiente seguro”.En uno de esos casos, dos adolescentes que eran primos fueron baleados y heridos en dos incidentes distintos en menos de un año, contó Reese. Mientras recibían tratamiento externo después de los sucesos, la tragedia les volvió a golpear. La hermana de uno de los muchachos murió en el incendio de una casa.“Recuerdo haber hablado con estos chicos acerca de su manera de enfrentar todo eso”, dijo Reese, “Y uno de los muchachos dijo…que casi había perdido la fe en Dios porque no llegaba a entender el porqué todas esas cosas les habían ocurrido a ellos”.¿Qué puede decirle un profesional de la salud a un muchacho necesitado de esa profunda atención espiritual?“Yo les digo, lo entiendo y estamos contigo para que puedas salir de esto”, respondió Reese. “Porque es ahí donde yo creo que las personas de fe pueden marcar una enorme diferencia. Puedes percibir como que Dios te ha abandonado, pero nosotros estamos contigo”.No hay una respuesta sencilla de por qué la violencia se ha disparado recientemente, advertía un informe del laboratorio de criminología de la Universidad de Chicago, pero es notable que en los cinco barrios con el mayor aumento en el número de homicidios, el 37 por ciento de los residentes vivían por debajo del nivel de la pobreza, en comparación con el 23 por ciento de la ciudad como un todo.“El aumento de homicidios en Chicago estaba desproporcionadamente concentrado en barrios que históricamente se encuentran entre los más desfavorecidos de la ciudad”, decía el informe.La gran mayoría de las víctimas en Chicago son varones de raza negra, y el superintendente de la policía Eddie Johnson ha dicho que gran parte de la violencia se arraiga en los “barrios empobrecidos”.“Me muestran a un hombre que no tiene esperanza, y les mostraré a uno que está dispuesto a coger un arma y hacer cualquier cosa con ella”, dijo Johnson a los reporteros en septiembre pasado luego del violento fin de semana del Día del Trabajo. “Esos son los problemas que conducen a esta violencia”.Reese, natural de Kentucky, obtuvo su licenciatura y su maestría en servicios sociales antes de comenzar sus primeros cinco años de atención pastoral en Stroger en 1986. Regresó al centro de trauma de Stroger en 2005 en un momento en que el hospital estaba respondiendo a los resultados de grupos de debate que se estaban llevando a cabo con jóvenes que habían sido tratados en el centro de trauma. Se les preguntaba que factores habían contribuido a su recuperación.“Casi en su totalidad, esos jóvenes les dijeron a los entrevistadores que lo que más les había ayudado a sobreponerse a una lesión violenta había sido su fe”, dijo Reese, que fue ordenada en 2010 al objeto de aportar más elementos litúrgicos y sacramentales a su labor.Ella está consciente, sin embargo, que la sociedad —así como los pacientes que suele ver— es cada vez menos religiosa, de ahí su preferencia por la expresión “atención espiritual” en lugar de un lenguaje más religioso. Incluso los pacientes sin profundas raíces en una tradición religiosa, captan los conceptos espirituales básicos.Ella y sus colegas atienden a las víctimas y sus familias como individuos, pero resulta difícil no fijarse en el panorama global y preguntarse lo que puede hacerse en la sociedad para frenar el ciclo de la violencia. En parte, esto es un acto de autopreservación, afirma Reese. Estamos realmente cansados de coser a personas y hacerlas salir de aquí a sabiendas de que puedes verlas de nuevo en un año o dos años o seis meses”.A través de su trabajo con Healing Hurt People-Chicago, ella y su equipo están creando medios para ayudar a estas familias antes de que una crisis los traiga al centro de trauma. Pueden dedicar tiempo a estudiar datos sobre la prevención de la violencia armada, o su enfoque puede ser tan simple como una conversación con un adolescente acerca de la manera segura de llegar a la escuela.Hace unos años, Reese estaba escuchando una presentación hecha por un miembro del grupo CeaseFire, que capta a expresos que han cambiado de vida para trabajar con jóvenes en peligro de tomar por la misma senda. El presentador dijo que, cuando él era joven, los miembros de su familia siempre le dijeron que no hiciera todas las cosas malas que estaba haciendo o terminaría en la cárcel o muerto. Él las siguió haciendo de todos modos.Reese le preguntó que habría querido que esas personas cercanas a él le hubieran dicho.“Estoy contento de que estés aquí”, fue su respuesta.“Lo que saqué de eso es que las personas necesitan sentirse amadas, valoradas, tratadas con respeto y saber que alguien se alegra de que ellos estén aquí [en el mundo]”, afirmó Reese.Los muchachos y jóvenes negros que ella ve en el centro de trauma tienen algo que ofrecer al mundo, dijo Reese. “Sencillamente tengo que creer eso, y que estaríamos mucho peor si ellos no existieran. Y ese es el mensaje que necesitan oír: me alegra que estés aquí. Quiero saber lo que aportas al mundo”.Y si realmente nos alegramos de que existan, debemos estar dispuestos a demostrarlo en la manera en que trabajamos para hacer una sociedad mejor, dijo ella, como es el garantizar igual acceso a la educación de calidad, abordar los prejuicios raciales en las tasas de encarcelación y la creación de oportunidades de empleo.“La solución parece tan enormemente complicada que nos paraliza”, siguió diciendo Reese. “Sencillamente parece demasiado grande para asumirla. Y es grande de asumir. Pero yo creo en lo que me concierne, como persona de fe en este entorno, que si digo que me alegra que existas, entonces eso significa que tengo que hacer algunas cosas para demostrarlo”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Itraffic’s Strategic Planning department has researched the online giving market for NSPCC and reports that online audiences in the UK have a higher propensity to support charities than the average UK population. Advertisement It says that there are 17.86 million donors with an Internet connection but only 1.62 million make donations online. This means that, while 66% of the online audience are charity supporters, online donors currently represent only 6% of the total market. However, Donato Larotonda, Strategic Planner at itraffic, believes that “charities could grow the online donor base to 15% of the market… by 2008.”The NSPCC will launch a campaign based on these findings later this year, to generate one-off and regular donations online. Itraffic will handle all the online creative, media planning and buying.Stephanie Hughes, Online Donor Recruitment and Relationship Marketing manager at NSPCC, said: “We enjoyed working with itraffic to devise the new campaign and valued the recommendations and creativity. Everybody at NSPCC is really keen to take this forward and increase our online presence as a result.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 12 September 2004 | News Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital Individual giving Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Nevertheless, O2 lowered their charges for all charities last year, Vodafone followed in February this year and most recently Virgin Media and Orange have made changes to pass on more of the donation.Joe Saxton who started the campaign to get mobile phone companies to reduce their charges said: “The mobile phone companies and the industry body, the Mobile Data Association have listened and made significant changes. VAT on text donations has been waived, special charity short codes have been introduced and all of the mobile phone companies have lowered their charges.“Later this year we will carry out research amongst donors to see what they think of these new rates. I hope that one day we will see a fixed fee for all donations. This would make it easier for donors to understand how much of their donation reaches the charity and build confidence in giving by text.”Roger Craven, Director of Vir2 Ltd, the specialist provider of mobile fundraising solutions, said: “Now that more money is getting through more charities are approaching us about running text fundraising campaigns. We have charity clients who are raising as much in one, or two days as all our clients put together used to raise in a whole month. It’s spontaneous and easy and reaches a new younger audience.”www.cafonline.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

As for the so-called “helping hand” to pensioners, we are being lied to once again: After having seen their retirement pensions reduced over the past 18 months — though Macron had sworn during his election campaign to protect them — not only will pensioners gain nothing (what was announced is the waiver of an additional tax). Above all they will lose even more purchasing power, since the increase in the value of pensions as of January 2019 — plus 0.3 percent — will not even compensate for the rate of inflation — plus 2 percent — expected for 2019.This false generosity of a “president who listens to the French” is therefore in the end nothing more than a hidden deepening of the logic of neoliberal austerity. Private sector wages are still not rising, civil servants’ salaries remain frozen, unemployment benefits continue to be cut. Basically, who are the “great forgotten” in the presidential speech? The rich! Big business and stock shareholders are rubbing their hands: No new contributions will be asked of them. The wealth tax is not restored! The torrents of public money offered as gifts to transnational corporations through the “tax credit for competition and employment” (CICE), without any guarantee of productive investment or job creation, are not slowed down! And the “reforms” of the destruction of State and public services, pension systems, social protection of citizens … are not being challenged!Three days before the president’s announcements, the French Senate had voted to reduce the “exit-tax,” a mechanism for taxing unrealized capital gains when wealthy taxpayers transfer to their home outside France in order to benefit from more advantageous taxation abroad. And just three days after the speech on Dec. 10, the management of the Ford automotive group confirmed its decision to close its Blanquefort plant, on the outskirts of Bordeaux, and to lay off more than 850 workers — who had accepted wage cuts in recent years to, they were told, “save the company.” Everything has changed so that nothing changes.Union demonstrations strongWhat reasons would there be for the Yellow Vests and all the workers to stop fighting? On Dec. 14, a day of action, strikes and demonstrations organized at the call of the CGT (General Confederation of Labor), FO (Workers’ Force), FSU (Unitary Trade Union Federation) and Union Syndicale Solidaires (of which SUD [Democratic Unitary Solidarity] is a member) drew thousands of people in Paris and several other large cities in France to support the immediate increase of wages and pensions, and the defense of social protection. Contingents from high schools joined the protest.The next day, Dec. 15, was “Act V” of the Yellow Vests’ mobilization. It took place in a particular context: that of a terrorist attack which occurred a few days earlier in the streets of Strasbourg, killing five people and imposing a moment of meditation in the country — and the postponement of a motion of censure presented by the left against the government in the National Assembly. The Macronian regime responded to the fifth demonstration of the Yellow Vests like a circus tamer trains a beast: by beating it with a stick and a whip — after the tiny treat [Macron’s speech] given Monday evening. The deployment of police forces was impressive: one police officer for every demonstrator throughout the country. In Paris there were even two police officers per demonstrator. Dozens of Paris metro stations were closed, and searching spots had been set up in train stations and various public places the day before. Some 168 arrests were made in the capital, and 115 people were put in police custody. That evening, the social networks of the Yellow Vests were already inviting us to an “Act VI” on Saturday, Dec. 22, to “prepare for Christmas Eve in Paris” and “the victory of the people.”Herrera is a Marxist economist, a researcher at the Centre national de la Recherche scientifique (CNRS), who works at the Centre d’Économie de la Sorbonne, Paris. WW staff translated this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Dec. 15 — In his brief Dec. 10 television address, French President Emmanuel Macron outlined the measures aimed at calming the popular anger of the “Yellow Vests”: 1) the pay of workers receiving the minimum wage (SMIC) would increase by “100 euros per month” starting January 2019; 2) a bonus “which will have no tax or charge” would be paid at the end of 2018 by “all employers who can”; 3) the payment of overtime would again be tax-free; and 4) the increase in the general social security tax (CSG) would be canceled in 2019 for retirees receiving less than 2,000 euros ($2,268) a month.Despite the brevity and technicality of the remarks, it didn’t take the French very long to calculate what they were going to gain in this case: almost nothing! The president performed one of his theater scenes — for which his spouse [an acting teacher] has been training him since he was 16 years old. However, this communication included a hypocritical solo in a guilty tone, something to which Macron, usually so scornful, had not accustomed his fellow citizens. Presidential arrogance decreased in tone, but not his incredible talent for sleight of hand! Between threats of increased repression and overplayed compassion, Macron the magician pulled out of his hat a thin bouquet of faded flowers: four measuring spoons that made the French look like beggars and served as a pretext for the dominant media to shout out for an end to the mobilization of Yellow Vests.Concessions concede littleThe reasons: The 100 euro increase in the SMIC will mainly come from the automatic legal increase of 25 euros, which will buy two take-out meals at McDonald’s, with ice cream, and the rest from the payment of an activity bonus that was already planned. Clearly, this increase was budgeted for the year 2019; in reality its introduction is just moved up by a few months. The tax exemption for overtime pay was already planned for 2019. It restores a system set up by former President Nicolas Sarkozy. On the contrary, what should have been proposed is to shorten the work week to share work with the unemployed and part-time or precarious workers. Of course the bosses should also pay the millions of overtime hours already worked by workers, but still not paid by employers (or the government). Very few workers will be affected by the other bonus, called “exceptional,” because its payment is left to the good will of the bosses. Only large firms will be able to pay it, certainly not small and medium-sized enterprises. As this bonus is exempt from “social security contributions,” the bosses who can give it will even gain in doing so rather than increasing salaries!
