By refusing to harvest customer data, and sharing our revenues with charity partners, we’re building an ethical search engine that offers a real alternative for consumers, whilst also generating millions of pounds for UK charities.”In addition the search service will be available in 35 languages later this year.Storm’s teamStorm has been developed with over £2 million of funding from investors and aims to have 10 million regular users within two years.The startup is backed by investment from several angel investors, including serial entrepreneur Andrew Crossland, of Crossland Technology Investments. The company is headed up by CEO Kevin Taylor, formerly of the security company Symantec. His data protection and information privacy expertise is a core element of Storm.Adam Green is CTO and the chief designer of the new platform. He helped develop the world’s largest online car hire company, RentalCars, which sold to Priceline Group in 2013, for $135 million. Green, a former Accenture director, helped Airtours, the tour operator that became Mytravel, develop its first online trading platforms at a time when it was the largest online travel booking company.Storm is available as an Android app with other mobile platforms in development.

Storm’s founders describe it as an “ethical search engine”.Storm will looks similar to other search engines, but  search results will include a ‘Give’ icon displayed alongside listings for participating retailers. Consumers know that when they make a purchase from one of these retailers, Storm will earn a commission, which it will shares with the consumer’s chosen charity. The consumer of course does not pay any extra for the purchase.Waitrose, Virgin, Sports Direct, Currys, Boots and B&Q are among the “thousands of well-known retailers” who are participating. Kevin Taylor has 25 years experience of data protection and information privacy Storm will be partnering with other charities and organisations, including Premier League football clubs. These partners will have the option to ‘white label’ a version of the Waterfox browser, featuring their own organisation’s branding and which has Storm as the default search engine.Waterfox is a very fast web browser, designed by Alex Kontos who is Head of Browser Development at Storm.Scale of the opportunityCurrently, according to IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index (January 2015), almost £1 in every £4 in the UK is spent online, totaling £116 billion in 20142. Storm’s founders claim that the site could generate “up to £25” from each active user per year for charitable causes.Unlike other established search engines, the individual user is completely anonymous while using Storm, as the search engine does not harvest data to package up and sell on to third parties.Other charitable search enginesThere are other established search engines that generate income for charities in the UK and internationally, so what makes Storm different?One selling point is that “the individual user is completely anonymous while using Storm, as the search engine does not harvest data to package up and sell on to third parties”.center_img Storm search results with ‘Give’ iconsFirst charity partnerStorm‘s launch charity partner is WellChild, the charity for sick children.Colin Dyer, CEO of WellChild, said:“WellChild is really excited to be working with Storm to give our supporters a quick and easy way to raise much needed money as they shop online – at no extra cost to them. This will make a real difference to thousands of seriously ill children and young people in the UK, helping to ensure they get the best possible care and support wherever they are and whenever they need it.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 7 August 2015 | News Tagged with: Digital Trading  79 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Chinese propaganda apparatus used to intimidate French reporter

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more December 1, 2015 – Updated on March 8, 2016 Chinese propaganda apparatus used to intimidate French reporter ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns the campaign to defame and intimidate the Beijing-based French journalist Ursula Gauthier that is being waged by China’s government-controlled news media, and the many other attacks against Gauthier on Chinese websites. The offensive was prompted by story posted on 18 November on the website of French Weekly L’Obs, for which she is the Beijing correspondent.Noting China’s expression of solidarity with France after the Paris attacks, Ursula Gauthier’s article said China wanted the same kind of international support for its counter-terrorism operations against Uyghurs in the western province of Xinjiang.The next day, Huanqiu Shibao (Global Times), a media outlet affiliated to Renmin Ribao (People’s Daily), the Chinese Communist Party’s official mouthpiece, published an inflammatory editorial accusing her of “double standards.”The editorial was reproduced by many other media outlets and websites, while a media lynching was orchestrated in the comments section of the People’s Daily website, including calls for her expulsion and death threats.A similarly violent offensive was unleashed on online forums about military issues, especially on the Sina.com and 163.com web portals. According to the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC), Gauthier’s address and photo have been posted on these forums.The FCCC, which is technically an illegal organization because it lacks official recognition, reported in a communiqué that Gauthier’s press card has not been renewed by the Chinese authorities. She was reportedly summoned to the Chinese foreign ministry where officials tried to get her to admit that her story was factually incorrect.“We join the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China in condemning these attempts to intimidate the journalist Ursula Gauthier,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“The authorities are usually quick to censor the comments sections of Chinese websites but this time they allowed Gauthier to be the target of a wave of hatred and aggressiveness in order to support their own rhetoric. We also urge the government to stop using accreditation as a lever to intimidate foreign journalists and obstruct their reporting in China.”Harassment by the authorities, obstruction and intimidation attempts continue to be the lot of foreign journalists and their local fixers in China, which is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.The harassment has stepped up this year. Several foreign journalists were manhandled and prevented from working after the explosions in the port city of Tianjin in August. An FCCC report released in September mentioned several cases of foreign journalists being harassed in the previous six months.

Three journalists arrested, a fourth in hiding

first_img News January 23, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists arrested, a fourth in hiding March 29, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has expressed its concern about the methods used by Zambian police following the arrest of three journalists from the independent bi-weekly newspaper The Monitor. The organisation has also called on the government to guarantee the protection of the paper’s news editor, who is still in hiding. News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reports Receive email alerts Follow the news on Zambia RSF_en Help by sharing this information to go further November 27, 2020 Find out more ZambiaAfrica Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the methods used by Zambian police following the arrest of three journalists working for the independent bi-weekly newspaper The Monitor. The organisation has asked the authorities to drop the charges brought against the journalists, and to do all in its power to ensure that such measures are no longer employed against the independent media. Journalists are not above the law, but nothing can justify their arrest by armed men. As Reporters Without Borders states, according to the United Nations, “imprisonment in punishment of the peaceful expression of an opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights”. Reporters Without Borders also calls on the government to guarantee the protection of the The Monitor’s news editor, who is still in hiding.According to Reporters Without Borders’ information, three journalists who work for the bi-weekly The Monitor were arrested in Lusaka on 21 January 2003 by armed police. The editor, Arthur Simuchoba, his assistant, Calvin Kaleyi, and chief reporter Chali Nondo, were released several hours later after being questioned about the paper’s publication, several months previously, of an article asserting that Harry Mwanawasa, the brother of the President of the Republic, Levy Mwanawasa, was involved in a case of corruption.On 22 January, a fourth journalist from The Monitor, Douglas Hampande, gave himself up to the police. He was questioned for two hours. The news editor, Mervin Syafunko, has remained in hiding in order to avoid arrest. In an interview on local radio he stated he felt he was in danger.

The Pandemic Effect of Housing

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Pandemic Effect of Housing Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Coronavirus HOUSING 2020-06-17 Seth Welborn June 17, 2020 2,092 Views Related Articles According to Freddie Mac’s Quarterly Forecast, housing markets have been affected by the pandemic with both home sales and house price growth declining.“While the housing market undoubtedly has felt the effects of COVID-19, we are encouraged by recent homebuyer demand as well as mortgage rates that should remain at record lows for the foreseeable future.” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “However, beyond the initial rebound in the housing market, the economic and housing outlook will be heavily impacted by the prospects for a vaccine, fiscal policy and the underlying organic recovery of the economy which, in combination, make the outlook highly uncertain.”According to the Forecast, the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is expected to be 3.4% in 2020 and 3.2 percent in 2021. House price growth is expected to decelerate to an annual rate of 2.3% in 2020. In 2021, that rate is expected to be 0.4%. Home sales are expected to decrease in 2020 to 4.8 million homes and increase in 2021 to 5.6 million homes. Purchase originations are expected to decrease to $1.044 trillion in 2020 and increase to $1.244 trillion in 2021. Refinance originations are expected to be $1.872 trillion in 2020 before falling to $1.279 trillion in 2021.Overall, the Forecast expects annual mortgage origination levels to be $2.916 trillion in 2020 and $2.524 trillion 2021.After falling off the cliff last month, the latest report on housing starts, permits, and completions by the U.S. Census Bureau was a mixed bag.Housing permits in May rose 14.4% in May from April but were 8.8% below the mark set in May 2019. Housing starts also rose monthly growing by 4.3% in May. Housing starts, though, are 23.2% below last year’s numbers.The Bureau reported that housing completions were down 7.3% in May when compared to April and 9.3% below the May 2019 rate.Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist, First American Financial, said May’s spike in homebuilder sentiment “smashed expectations” and, coupled with low mortgage rates, are further evidence of recovery for the housing market.“Today’s month-over-month increase in housing starts indicates a turn may be on the way. Housing permits, a leading indicator of future starts, are up 14%, and 12% for much-needed single-family homes. This bodes well for further increases in starts in the coming months,” she said.
