Kyla Shawyer appointed permanent CEO to lead the Resource Alliance with a renewed mandate

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 ottobre 2015

sony-worldThe Board of Trustees of The Resource Alliance has unanimously appointed Kyla Shawyer to the position of permanent chief executive. She has been interim chief since June 2014.Kyla has led a year-long visioning process that involved information gathering and collaboration with leaders and organisations in the social impact sector around the world. The resulting Manifesto points to a redoubling of the organisation’s commitment to play the role of convener and curator, as they help the sector take advantage of unprecedented new opportunities born through social media and new technology. Vicky Annis, chair of the Resource Alliance, said: “The Resource Alliance has always been dedicated to helping fundraisers develop the skills and knowledge needed to secure critical financial resources for their organisations. Over the past year we have been expanding our commitment to include the intellectual and human resources necessary to take advantage of this new era. Kyla’s unique team-building skills and collaborative style make her perfectly suited to lead the Resource Alliance forward. Kyla noted: “The once stark line between sectors is beginning to blur and traditional models of ‘giving’ are being disrupted by new kinds of social investment—from crowd sourcing to direct personal loans, from social enterprises to cross-sector partnerships. With everything in a state of change, it will be more important than ever to build new kinds of teams and new kinds of collaborations – bringing the best ideas to the table, regardless of where they might originate, and turning them into models our sector can use to thrive.” “I could not be more humbled nor excited to be a part of this outstanding team at this time in its history. It is a true honor, and I look forward to many new partnerships with people and organisations committed to building a better world.”

Steady Stadler stretches advantage

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 7 luglio 2014

Steady StadlerAmerican Kevin Stadler remains on course for a wire-to-wire victory in the Alstom Open de France after a testing third round which saw just three players break 70. Stadler held a one shot lead after a flawless opening 64 and extended his advantage to three shots thanks to a second round of 68. And although the World Number 62 shot a one over par 72 on Saturday, the wet and windy conditions meant he finished the day four ahead of France’s Victor Riu and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee. Jaidee’s 69 would have been even better if not for a bogey on the 18th, where he drove into the water, while US Open Champion Martin Kaymer is six off the lead after a 70. “I think since the first day he’s running away a little bit, so I guess he likes the golf course as much as I do,” Kaymer said of Stadler, who won his first US PGA Tour title in Phoenix in February. “So I think it will be difficult to catch him. If the weather stays like this, I just need to shoot a very, very low score tomorrow. If you get within two or three shots of him, he might get some nerves the last three or four holes because it’s a tough finish. But the way he plays golf and the way I know him, he’s a very laid-back guy so it will be difficult to catch him. I can only try to shoot as low as I can to be happy with myself.” Stadler carded one bogey and eight pars on the front nine and that allowed Riu to claim a share of the lead when he recorded his second birdie of the day on the ninth. At that point the 29 year old from Paris was the only player in the field not to have dropped a shot, but a bogey promptly arrived on the tenth after he drove into the water and Stadler holed from ten feet for birdie and a two shot swing. Riu bounced straight back with a birdie on the 11th but then carded five bogeys and a birdie in the next six holes, managing his only par of the back nine on the 18th. Stadler was far more consistent with seven pars and a bogey on the 17th, despite struggling with a back injury which flared up during the round. “It’s a little tight,” the 34 year old said. “It’s been a little out of whack all week. Luckily didn’t give me a whole lot of trouble the first couple of days, but it today it turned up a bit. I’m still able to swing so should be fine. I got about what I deserved out of my game today. I didn’t play that great, made a whole lot of pars and did not have nearly as many looks (for birdie) as I had the last couple days, but you can’t expect to play that well for four days in a row. I knew I really didn’t have to do anything crazy today. A couple less would have been nice, but overall I’m happy the way it went.” Defending champion Graeme McDowell is eight shots off the pace after a rollercoaster 73 which featured four bogeys, one double bogey and four birdies in the space of five holes from the fifth. “It was tough to find a rhythm, it was playing pretty difficult,” McDowell said. “It was nice to string a few birdies together and get myself back into it and as I made the turn I was feeling good about myself, my swing and my position in the tournament. “My swing off the 10th and 13th tee has been haunting me a bit, I’m just not committing to those shots and missing them all left. I’m disappointed with that back nine (39) because I really felt like I swung the club decently today. All I can do is try to shoot a 66 or 67 and there’s a 75 or 76 waiting for anyone on this golf course.”As far as French players are concerned, Julien Quesne managed a brilliant three-under par 68, the lowest round of the day, to tie for 12th. On the same mark is Alexander Levy, who carded a 1-over 72. World No. 22 Victor Dubuisson finished and horrendous day with a double bogey on 18 for a five-over par 76. (Steady Stadler)

Signor Fini, where do you stand?

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 agosto 2010

From The Economist August 7th 2010: Victory for Silvio Berlusconi can rarely have tasted so bitter. On August 4th a junior minister from his People of Freedom party (PdL) faced a vote of censure in parliament over an alleged scheme to rig judicial and political posts. The prime minister’s man won, but thanks largely to the abstention of 25 PdL deputies allied to Gianfranco Fini, who had ended months of bickering by breaking with Mr Berlusconi a few days earlier. Mr Fini did not need to press home his advantage to spell out that the PdL can no longer count on winning a majority. Only two years into his ve-year term, Mr Berlusconi now governs at Mr Fini’s pleasure. The question is, what does Mr Fini plan to do with his power? You do not need to be as critical of Italy’s PM-cum-mogul as this newspaper has been to welcome Mr Fini’s challenge. Of late, Italian politics has featured almost as much sex and crime as the evening schedule on a Berlusconi television channel. That would not matter so much if Italy were thriving. Yet, even as the economy has lost competitiveness over the years, the PdL and its precursor, Forza Italia, have neglected reform. In- stead they have been absorbed in serving Mr Berlusconi’s narrow concernsto gain a reprieve from the law, say, or to help a favoured interest. Mr Berlusconi kept Italy’s budget under control and last week his government belatedly passed an austerity bill, but it was long on cuts and short on reform. The prime minister’s fans say that under him Italy has enjoyed rare stability, but what use is stability if you do nothing with it? Mr Fini is more socially liberal, keen for example to limit the Catholic church’s inuence over Italians’ lives (see next leader). He has also taken a stand against corruption. Whereas Mr Berlusconi has repeatedly attacked the judiciary and sought to frustrate their inquiries by tinkering with the law, Mr Fini has argued that any oce-holder who becomes a formal suspect should always stand asidewhich arguably gives magistrates too much power. Most of all, Mr Fini wants a party That is not just a vehicle for Mr Berlusconi, but one that can weave policy from the hopes and ideas of all its members. Yet doubts remain. Although Mr Fini says some of the right things, does he say them for the right reasons? The easiest worry to put to rest is over his origins as a neo-fascist. His praise long ago for Mussolini was indeed contemptible, but if there is such a thing as redemption in politics Mr Fini deserves his chance. In a political journey lasting many years, Mr Fini has trekked to the centre-ground. In the process he has visited Israel and Auschwitz, jettisoned neo-fascist true believers, including his wife, repeatedly denounced Mussolini’s crimes and formed the PdL with Mr Berlusconi. Less easy to shake o are the scheming and dirigisme. Al- though Mr Fini has courage, he is capable of breathtaking inconsistencyjust take the abstention in this week’s vote. Never mind that it contradicted his policy that oce-holders under formal suspicion should resign; Mr Fini does not want an elec-tion before the voters are familiar with his new party. He also betrays an admiration for the corporatism of Nicolas Sarkozy. Mr Fini is probably Italy’s most able politician. He has skil-fully plotted and schemed his way to the top, using power to win power. But if, as is now likely, the fag-end of Mr Berlus- coni’s premiership soon burns out and the president calls an election, Mr Fini will need to start using power to get some- thing done for the good of Italians, not Gianfranco Fini. That will demand not just guile and a sharp instinct for survival, but other, more noble attributes, including consistency and principle. It is time for Mr Fini to show that he possesses these too.
In meantime there is a question about Mr Fini was raised in Il Giornale, a newspaper owned by Silvio Berlusconi’s brother. The paper said a at in Monte Carlo willed to Mr Fini’s old party had been sold at a knock-down price to the rst of several oshore companies. One now rents it to the brother of Mr Fini’s partner, it said. Mr Fini has threatened to sue for libel. But he has not yet oered a detailed rebuttal of the news-paper’s claims. The FLI agreed on its abstention policy this week with three other parties, including the Union of Christian and Centre Democrats (UDc), a conservative opposition group. Could this pact grow into a third force in Italian politics? No, say Mr Fini’s acolytes, who argue that his real aim is a modernised right, rather than an old-style, Christian Democrat-based centre. Not that that will relieve the pressure on Mr Berlusconi when parliament reconvenes in September. Sooner or later, he may want to go to the polls for a renewed mandate. But under Italian law he cannot dissolve parliament. That prerogative be- longs to President Giorgio Napolitano, who may want a transitional, technocratic government to guarantee stability. Indeed, as the Italian political year built to a characteristically theatrical nale, scarcely anyone except Mr Berlusconi recalled that Italy’s public-debt levels, as a percentage of GDP, are among the highest in the world; that its public nances are acutely dependent on the yield investors demand for holding its bonds; that yields normally rise with political instability; and that investors have seldom been warier of southern European sovereign debt. When this odd, slow-motion crisis resumes in the autumn, it could be about more than who heads the government.
