The Nationwide Foundation is awarding £804,841 of funding to support PRS tenants by giving them a stronger voice in the debates on their personal housing issues or in housing matters in their local area.Organisations will use the funding to provide renters with:greater access to information and advice on the private rented sectorenhanced understanding of their rightssafe places to come togethersupport to speak upopportunities to work together.The Nationwide Foundation’s tenants’ voice programme supports projects that specifically help tenants whose personal circumstances – such as low-income, disadvantaged and vulnerable households – mean that they cannot avoid the potential problems of living in the private rented sector. Problems include insecurity, poor living conditions, high costs and severe lack of choice, which therefore puts them at increased risk of harm. The seven funded organisations including tenants unions are:Camden Federation of Private Tenants, working with local authorities in London, connecting key officers and politicians with renters, so that issues are better understood, tenants’ voices are clearly heard, and local authority practice is improved. (£100,371 for two years)Citizens Advice, establishing a panel of private rented sector tenants across England to speak out on behalf of tenants, giving them a voice in policy decisions. (£131,336 for 18 months)Housing Rights, strengthening the voice of private renters in Northern Ireland by building capacity among renters and contributing to a culture among stakeholders which values tenant participation. (£177,623 for three years)Living Rent, testing the model of tenant union neighbourhood branches to support renters on low-incomes or from migrant backgrounds in Glasgow. (£177,623 for three years)Shelter, using a community organising model to bring together and empower renters across the West of England Combined Authority. (Grant of £100,000 for three years)Tenants Union, elevating the voices of Greater Manchester’s tenants through the creation of a tenant-led housing manifesto. (Grant of £150,000 for three years)Z2K, helping renters who were homeless or vulnerably housed to use their voices and have their stories heard, while campaigning on issues identified by these tenants. (Grant of £150,000 for three years.)The Nationwide Foundation’s programme manager, Bridget Young, said, “There’s real appetite to grow an energetic, purposeful tenants’ voice movement, and we hope this funding will lead to tenants becoming a normal and expected part of the advisory process. Giving tenants the freedom and space to have stronger voices in debates on the private rented sector and housing, will mean positive changes in policy and practice, including better rights for tenants.”Find out more:This funding has been given as part of the Nationwide Foundation’s Transforming the Private Rented Sector programme.Nationwide Foundation PRS tenants Nationwide PRS private rented sector Sheila Manchester July 12, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgBy Elroy StephneyLIMA United and Walton Hall secured contrasting victories on Sunday at the Walton Hall ground to book their places in the final.

Appropriately, one of the park’s final flashing imprints will be left by an Oakland Athletic who somewhat jokingly calls this place home.Friday night, Khris Davis hit two home runs — the first, off the bat at 105 mph for a solo homer. The second into the opposite field for a go-ahead three-run shot — for his first multi-homer game since May 13 against the Seattle Mariners.

first_img“The investments by both Eskom and Exxaro will have a significant benefit to the local, provincial and ultimately the South African economy,” Eskom CEO Jacob Maroga said in a statement this week. 22 September 2008 Medupi is the first of Eskom’s new generation base-load coal-fired power stations, and will comprise six 800MW generation units capable of supplying a total of 4 800MW of generation capacity to the national grid. The coal for Medupi will be supplied through a brownfields expansion of Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine – situated near Lephalale – with mining from the existing opencast pit continuing at an accelerated rate. Over the next 40 years, the mine will supply an average of 14.6 tons of power station-grade coal to Medupi per year. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The coal beneficiation process will be handled via two new dense medium facilities, the Grootegeluk 7 and Grootegeluk 8 beneficiation plants, which will be constructed at the mine. South African state-owned electricity company Eskom and diversified mining group Exxaro Resources have signed a coal supply agreement for Eskom’s Medupi base-load power station, currently being built in Lephalale in Limpopo province. “We value the co-operative and long-standing relationship that has developed between Eskom and Exxaro and are pleased to be able to continue this mutually beneficial relationship,” said Exarro Resources CEO Sipho Nkosi. “We estimate that about 550 permanent jobs will be created at the Grootegeluk mine.” SAinfo reporter It will be the largest air-cooled power station in South Africa. Its first generation unit is scheduled for commercial operation during the last quarter of 2011, with the last unit expected to be in operation in the first half of 2014. “Direct jobs created during construction by both investments will peak at about 9 500 with the Eskom investment generating 8 000 and the Exxaro investment generating 1 500 of these jobs.” Exxaro’s capital expenditure for the project is estimated at R9-billion, and production is planned to begin in the third quarter of 2009, with a ramp-up to full production capacity by 2014.last_img read more

first_img Leverage AI to work smarter. Thanks to the rise of companies like Amazon and Netflix, consumers expect flawless digital experiences at the click of a mouse. However, most companies don’t have the clout, savvy, or business know how to scale. DAM and CMS work together to provide seamless experiences that scale.Digital asset management systems (DAM) are becoming vital to success. Content management (CMS) has become a nightmare, requiring expert assistance or software. Your digital asset management systems and content management are both the key to your company productivity.Forty percent of consumers are turned off by poorly written content.About 30 percent get frustrated with bad design or awkward interfaces. And three in five of the consumers say these issues have to do with a brand. It is essential to keep track of and follow consumer trends that will reveal what current thoughts are on CMS and DAM.Personalization is key to better brand appeal with clients and customers. More than 50 percent of consumers say they are more likely to buy from a brand that personalizes its message to them. Non-personalized marketing campaigns see lower response rates.But for mid-sized businesses, offering a perfect experience to every customer, every time, is a real challenge.These companies don’t have the same marketing resources as their multi-billion dollar peers. Additionally, founders and employees at mid-sized organizations often wear many hats, making it difficult and time-consuming to deliver personalized experiences consistently.Luckily, mid-sized companies can scale content creation and delivery while still saving time and money. Investing in content management systems (CMS) and digital asset management (DAM) is a must.Content management systems developed alongside the internet.Maybe you are a new business blogger, but for those who have been in business for many years — a CMS is critical. Consider one early example — Blogger, a first adapter of providing a CMS service; this blog-publishing service debuted in 1999.CMS offers users a system to help them create, edit, organize and publish content on the web.Today, companies utilizing CMS can centralize the management and publishing of all content across channels, which helps streamline workflows. CMS also enables companies to access and deploy digital content simultaneously across platforms, and gauge the performance of their content in real-time.To access the right content at the right time, though, marketers need to couple their CMS with digital asset management software.Coupling helps companies quickly find and retrieve content, such as photos, videos, and logos, and then publish that content and track its performance.If you’ve ever used Google Drive to store and then post a video or share a file with a friend, you’ve used and shared digital asset management software. You will want a digital assets management system for your business.Some great examples of more substantial business or enterprise digital asset management systems look to:Adobe Experience Manager AssetsBynderCanto CloudinaryStylelabsWidenBrandfolderA few examples of popular content management systems would be:WordPressJoomlaDrupalMagento (for ecommerce stores)Squarespace WixHere are three ways DAM and CMS work together to provide seamless experiences that scale. Remote Working Culture: The Facts Business Owne… Tags:#AI#cms#content management#DAM#digital asset management#digital assets#website AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Many mid-sized companies create and store content in silos.A campaign offer will differ slightly depending on whether consumers will view it on desktop, mobile, or Facebook. With the right CMS and DAM solutions, companies can centralize content creation and make updates across all channels simultaneously. Manually updating for each channel is no longer an option in this climate of entire business optimizations.Using both systems together can boost a company’s bottom line, as can what’s referred to as “asset reuse” when assets are reused across multiple engagements.Research shows that companies that don’t use DAM solutions spend over $44,000 more to manage assets. Conversely, when properly employed, DAM solutions can save companies close to $189,000 in just five years.Just look at Motorola. Before adopting a DAM solution, employees at the telecommunications company spent 20 minutes, on average, tracking down, converting, and disseminating each image they used. Employing a DAM solution to quickly locate these images saved the company $600,000.Today’s customers want efficient, personalized, digital experiences. Brands of all sizes can deliver. They just need a CMS — and they need to give a DAM. Increase productivity.center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts Save money. karthik muralidharan At firms that don’t use CMS, making changes to a website is difficult and time-consuming. Marketing department employees most likely can’t make these changes on their own. Request assistance from colleagues in the IT department and there’s no telling how long it might take.We all rely on IT and devs to handle all these requests. The simple fact remains, the IT teams are slammed with much more urgent priorities.With the right CMS, marketers can quickly implement website changes on their own, without relying on IT.As a result, marketers can push out new content and experiences much faster. A small digital optimization won’t cut it anymore. Reducing reliance on IT departments isn’t the only way to increase productivity.Consider how much work it currently takes to locate and reuse digital assets. Over 80 percent of companies say the most significant challenge they face when utilizing digital assets is simply tracking down that content.Watch blogging information by Morgan Quinn, a digital content manager. Quinn reports that brands that employ DAM solutions locate digital assets five times more quickly than their peers. Artificial intelligence can enhance the capabilities of DAM solutions, thereby giving mid-sized firms the ability to find and deliver content to large consumer segments quickly.“Smart tagging,” for example, uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to automatically tag videos and photos.With smart tagging, marketers don’t have to spend hours trying to organize content and come up with the best descriptions for them. Simply building AI into their DAM solution can provide a solution for them.Consider the story of Silicon Labs, a semiconductor equipment manufacturer with about $800 million in annual revenue. Silicon Labs deployed Adobe Experience Manager to tag and track 5,000 technical documents. This project also included the tagging and tracking of images and photos, their management, and the delivery of experiences.It used to take Silicon Labs a week to make changes to its website since marketers often had to wait for the IT department. Now, changes take just 20 minutes.Adopting a company-wide DAM solution and CMS to manage all your content may seem daunting, but the benefit for smaller firms is immense. Increasing efficiency and reducing time to publish marketing research and give critical insights in content provides new and exciting experiences. Silicon Labs is a prime example here, with its marketing team consisting of only three people.last_img read more
