They started scaling back – the gun boat that was in the Cuyuni is now removed and the armament they had there is now moved towards inland Venezuela,” said Harmon.He said the response from Government was also due to the analyses taken from the reports received and it was not lacking in any form or manner.Guyana’s President David Granger is scheduled to meet with his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolas Maduro on Sunday in a meeting facilitated by the United Nations General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon.On May 26, Maduro issued a decree claiming two thirds of Guyana’s territory igniting controversy from a dispute that was settled since 1899 by an Arbrital Award.The purported annexation of the waters off Essequibo now takes in the oil-rich Stabroek Block, where American oil giant Exxon Mobil in May found a “significant” reserve of high quality crude oil.ExxonMobil said the discovery was made in one of the two wells it dug, in the Liza-1 drill site, which realised more than 295 feet of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone.At the end of their annual summit in Barbados in July, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries reaffirmed the “longstanding, deep and wide-ranging friendship between CARICOM and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela”.last_img read more

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Bill Walker has added a bill to his special session calling for the establishment of a oil and gas infrastructure development program. The bill would join ten others that Walker is asking lawmakers to consider. The bill was originally introduced during the regular session but it stalled. Two new bills were also introduced by Walker on Monday: one would extend major medical coverage to the survivors of peace officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty; the other contains a number of different tax proposals. The bills requiring the most attention from lawmakers during this special session will be the budget, along with the oil/gas tax credits and revenue bills. On most of the bills up for consideration, Walker is giving legislators the option to pick up the process where they left off, but a two-thirds vote in each chamber is needed for that to be accomplished.last_img read more

first_imgBruce RastetterOutgoing Board of Regents president Bruce Rastetter attended his last meeting today in Council Bluffs.“It has certainly been an interesting six years and perspective of the public institutions and what the board has that I have really grown to appreciate,” Rastetter says.Rastetter, who is a businessman from Alden, decided not to apply for another term on the board. He told the board they need to keep active in running the three state-supported universities.“It’s really important that the Board of Regents not be a placeholder board,” Rastetter says. “I think oftentimes in the past it’s been a position that is certainly coveted in the state, it holds a high degree of prestige as we think about it. But it clearly needs to be an active oversight board. And this board has been.”Rastetter says the new board will face challenges with the state’s budget situation, and says the board staff is working to address that. He says they will create a task force that they would present at the next meeting for the summer, “for the regents to engage the stakeholders in in Des Moines and Iowa to talk about what tuition and public support will be going forward for the regents.” “I think that will be an important process, an important process to look at the individuality of each university as the president’s bring forward their tuition discussions,” according to Rastetter He says one of the things they will have to consider given the budget situation is if they can stick with their promise to only raise tuition 2 percent.Rastetter again told board members they need to be involved. “I would in closing say that I would encourage the board and the new boardmembers to be an active board. Because if you are not accepting where we are today, it will lead you to a lower result, rather than a greater result as do most things in life,” Rastetter says. Board president pro-tem Katie Mulholland sought reappointment to the board, but she was left off the governor’s list.The governor appointed Nancy Boettger, a former Republican state senator from Harlan, and Nancy Dunkel, a Democrat from Dyersville who served two terms in the Iowa House to fill the open spots. Rastetter and Mullholland were honored with proclamations read during the meeting. Iowa State University president Steven Leath also attended his last regents meeting before leaving to become the president at Auburn. He mentioned the move briefly after his update to the board on activities at ISU.“I would like to say that it has been a great opportunity to serve as president of Iowa State. I’ve enjoyed it immensely, hardest job I’ve ever had, the one I liked the best, and appreciate my time in Iowa,” Leath says. Leath will leave ISU in May.The Board of Regents approved the second reading today to increase the room and board rates at the University of Iowa, Iowa State and UNI. The most common room and board plan will go up 1.9 percent at Iowa State, 1.8 percent at UNI and one-half-of-one percent at the U-I.Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgOn my way to my daughter’s school, every morning, I pass a house that has a creche in its front yard. It’s been there since early December. Baby Jesus has been lingering there for the entire winter and Spring, and at this rate he may be slumbering into the summer. He is covered with pollen these days.Every morning, my daughter takes note of his long, post-seasonal stay in the manger.“It’s STILL there!” she notes.Then she asks why.You could attribute all kinds of interesting reasons for this never-ending nativity scene. Maybe it’s a family that practices a particular kind of christianity. Maybe they like the way the creche looks amid the Spring flowers and overgrown grass. Maybe they have the Christmas spirit all year long.Or maybe they are just lazy. Maybe they still have their tree up inside too, because they haven’t summoned the energy to pack it up either. My fave marketer, Seth Godin, says you can be sure of two things about all people: they are lazy, and they are in a hurry.We marketers like to spend a lot of time analyzing why people do some things or don’t do some things. We think of religion, attitudes, mindsets. But we should also be thinking of lazy. And in a hurry. Maybe we’re just making it too darn hard for people to take action.Maybe if taking action was really easy, more people would do it.Never underestimate the importance of ease and convenience. Try vastly simplifying your call to action and the level of effort it requires. See what happens. You might get Christmas in April.last_img read more

first_imgRight about now, most of us are panicking. We’re watching our 401Ks disintegrate before our eyes. Major financial comapnies are crumbling. And fundraising has never looked so tough.Stop. Take a deep breath and consider this.Over and over, research tells us the same thing about why people stop giving. And it’s got nothing to do with the Dow Jones.PEOPLE STOP GIVING BECAUSE THEY ARE FED UP BY HOW THEY WERE TREATED BY THE CHARITIES THEY SUPPORT. Running out of money is far down the list of reasons people stop giving.Look, it’s reasonable to expect this won’t be a banner year for giving. People are hurting financially. But worrying about their wallets is not going to do you much good. You can’t control the economy.You CAN control how you treat your donors.And the best kept secret to fundraising success is: be nice to your donors. Lavish them with love, thanks and special treatment. Because most charities do not. You can stand out and save your donors if you get better at this. And trust me, it’s a lot easier to keep a donor than find a new one. So get better at building relationships with the people who support you.The latest research proving this is from Bank of America and the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University (subscription required to view the Chronicle article.) The NUMBER ONE reason wealthy donors stopped giving, according to this study, was they no longer feel connected to the organization or believe they are being asked for money too often. Another top reason: they decided to give to a different charity. Probably related to those other issues, right?Non-wealthy donors are the same, by the way. They want to know what their donations accomplished, they want to know whose lives they changed, and they want to feel great about themselves and the cause they support. Give them that, as often as you can. Because it matters more than ever.Note this from the Chronicle article:Bank of America’s philanthropy experts said that as the economy worsens, donors they work with are increasingly saying they want their dollars to make a difference.You may not be able to change the economy, but you can convince a donor their dollars make a great difference. Treat your donors well. Give them credit for your success. They are people, not ATM machines.last_img read more
