Times incorona Giorgia Meloni tra le 20 personalità più influenti a livello mondiale

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 4 gennaio 2020

“Il Times incorona Giorgia Meloni tra le 20 personalità più influenti a livello mondiale per il 2020. Giorgia Meloni è al centro dell’attenzione dei media più importanti a livello mondiale. È un onore e una speranza per l’Italia. È frutto del grande lavoro e della sua competenza e non certamente figlia di operazioni strane, subdole o che partono da ambienti ‘interessati’. È un riconoscimento che nasce da una riflessione seria e, paradossalmente, estranea ai tanti osservatori Italiani sempre impegnati ad analizzare le ‘pagliuzze’ ma incapaci di vedere la ‘trave’”. Lo dichiara il senatore di Fratelli d’Italia, Massimo Ruspandini.

The Times meets Trump, and Ronan Farrow takes on the system

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 2 agosto 2018

By Pete Vernon. President Trump kicked up a journalistic firestorm Sunday morning, tweeting about an off-the-record meeting with New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger. Trump claimed that the two had “a very good and interesting meeting at the White House,” and discussed “the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media.”Sulzberger, viewing Trump’s comment as putting the meeting on the record, responded with a lengthy statement, explaining that his main reason for meeting with Trump “was to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric. I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.” NYT editorial page editor James Bennett also attended the meeting, which took place on July 20.The nature of the talk stood in contrast to the paper’s post-election interview with Trump, one that the newsroom fought to be put on the record after television anchors were criticized for taking an off-the-record meeting with the then-president-elect. While it’s easy to argue that Sulzberger and Bennett shouldn’t be agreeing to conditions from a man who has continuously demeaned the reporting of their employees, it’s also hard to imagine them turning down a chance to challenge the president on his attacks. Where Sulzberger erred was expecting that Trump would both provide an accurate account of the meeting and change his approach to the media, two things he has shown no interest in doing.Politico’s Andrew Restuccia and Brent D. Griffiths note that “The Times has long been a convenient foil for Trump, a regular Times reader who has a fascination with the paper despite his loud criticism of its coverage. So it was no surprise that Trump would try to spin the meeting with Sulzberger to his advantage.”Trump responded later in the day with a thread of angry tweets, accusing the media of being “unpatriotic.” He added, “The failing New York Times and the Amazon Washington Post do nothing but write bad stories even on very positive achievements — and they will never change!”
The Times’s Mark Landler spoke with Sulzberger, who said Trump took pride in popularizing the phrase “fake news.” Sulzberger also noted that at one point he told the president that media organizations had resorted to “posting armed guards outside their offices because of a rise in threats against journalists. The president, he said, expressed surprise that they did not already have armed guards.” (font: CJR Editors)

Times, il singolo di The Leading Guy che ha conquistato Davidoff esce negli store e su Vevo

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 1 luglio 2018

Times, il singolo di The Leading Guy, scelto dal famoso brand Davidoff per l’attuale campagna pubblicitaria Zest For Life, è finalmente disponibile negli store e su Vevo con un videoclip inedito. Il singolo, pubblicato da VignaPR / Sony Music Italy, punta, senza deviazioni, verso un suono incisivo e un impasto armonico pieno di colori.È un atto d’amore dichiarato verso la musica, appunto, quella che salva la vita e ti fa cantare con più convinzione: un carattere in cui Simone Zampieri, cantautore cresciuto artisticamente in Irlanda, dove ha vissuto per un lungo periodo, attenua le sue sfumature più melanconiche e si immerge in una coralità condivisa con moltissimi amici, da Taketo Gohara alla produzione (Vinicio Capossela, Negramaro, Motta) ad Alessandro “Asso” Stefana alle chitarre, Filippo Pedol al contrabbasso, Mauro Ottolini ai fiati e Sebastiano De Gennaro alla batteria e percussioni.
La lingua è quella più adatta ad un pop di ampio respiro, l’inglese: espressione naturale, mai forzata, per il giovane cantautore, che con Times vuole soprattutto “raccogliere le forze” per spiccare un volo decisamente senza rete. Questo brano le annoda fra di loro: ha una melodia accattivante, che si propaga in fretta, e una ricchezza di toni, che gli permette di respirare a lungo, di arrivare un po’ ovunque. La musica colora il mondo e lo fa risuonare, proprio grazie a pezzi come questo e a chi li concepisce. The Leading Guy ha messo a frutto anni di scrittura e di canzoni ed è pronto a ripartire, verso nuove e più movimentate avventure. Il nuovo videoclip che accompagna il singolo ha come protagonisti due giovani sconosciuti, uno sguardo rubato e il desiderio di seguire il proprio istinto. Le immagini firmate da Stefano Poggioni, si snodano attraverso una rincorsa fisica ed emotiva ad un autobus tra le colline di provincia, metafora di un desiderio che va inseguito per diventare reale. Un video dal sapore cinematografico che, con la semplicità di una storia comune, vuole raccontare l’imprevedibilità, fatta di occasioni e di scelte. La voglia d’essere felici va spesso inseguita, perché a volte dopo una salita si trova qualcosa di prezioso, per cui sia valsa la pena mettersi in gioco.

Face-to-face fundraising helps charities beat the recession

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 ottobre 2015

economia_4Face-to-face fundraising is a recession-proof technique with income levels from this source tending to grow during times of economic difficulty. So delegates to the Resource Alliance’s International Fundraising Congress heard today during the face-to-face masterclass, hosted by Daryl Upsall and David Cravinho. “Face-to-face fundraising is recession free – data from across Europe and South America shows this to be true. This is because it is about one human connecting with another, and in times of economic difficulty people recognise that others suffer and so want to help them,” said David Cravinho, head of regular giving at Unicef (Switzerland).“Contrary to popular opinion, a recession is absolutely the time to approach your board for more investment. The biggest non-profits in Spain have grown enormously since the recession, recruiting many thousands of new supporters through face-to-face,” said Daryl Upsall of Daryl Upsall Consulting International. This view was reflected from within the audience. A delegate from Australia said they had found the recession helpful for recruiting fundraisers as well as donors. When the national job market is difficult, it means there is a higher calibre of people willing and able to work as fundraisers, they said – adding that the more intelligent a conversation fundraisers have with donors means the stronger the relationship the charity can have with that individual. Retention of donors recruited via face-to-face channels can be challenging, added Daryl Upsall.
“Some organisations have very high attrition rates. However, attrition is going down for those organisations that apply the best retention practices,” he said. Speaking on the topic of donor retention was Rupert Tappin of Decaid Consulting who made a guest appearance at the masterclass. He presented his top ten tips for effective retention of donors recruited via face-to-face fundraising. These included:
1: Effective fundraising management: clean data, well-managed teams, realistic expectations, the courage to innovate and a willingness to question everything are essential.
2: Don’t neglect payment reconciliation. The back-end donor processing facilities are really important. Lots of donors can be lost due to payments not being properly collected by the charity. Equally, the quicker the first payment is collected, the lower the attrition rate.
3: Choose a great agency. Work closely with them as a genuine partnership and hold each other accountable for what has been promised.
4: Think about your recruitment channel and payment method: understand the metrics and most effective comparisons to make. Not all campaigns are the same and will provide different results.
5: Plan the donor journey: what you will send to whom and when – including those who cancel their gift. Listen to your donors – give them the opportunity to upgrade or downgrade their donation, or give them a donation holiday.
6: Communicate with the donor in the way that suits them best – not what suits you best (i.e. the cheapest option). Keep their needs at the forefront of your mind.
7: Consider short-term gain v long-term pain: the best long-term donor isn’t necessarily the cheapest. Consider cost per recruit with return on investment.
8: Match reality with what is planned: break the obsession with a one year cycle – the success of regular giving should be determined by performance over five years and longer.
9: Tell the story: Build up the donor’s knowledge of the cause and continue the story that they were recruited on to help retain the donor and strengthen their loyalty to your cause.
10: Break down internal silos, particularly between the finance and database teams. Internal knowledge and understanding of F2F is critical for effective continuity of donor relationship.

International Roma Day 2010

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 aprile 2010

Every second Roma respondent to the Fundamental Rights Agency’s EU-MIDIS survey said that they had been discriminated against in the past 12 months. Roma access to housing, education, health care and employment is hindered as a result.  If the situation is to change, Roma and Traveller involvement in the design, implementation and evaluation of strategies targeting them is essential, stresses the Fundamental Rights Agency on International Roma Day 2010.“There are areas where improvements can be seen, but in too many places the situation is worse.  As we witness high levels of racially motivated crime against Roma, the highest levels of EU and national authorities must now speak out against anti-Gypsyism and lead by example on human rights protection…Especially in times of economic crises, human rights need to be seen as an asset to our well being, not as a cost,” Morten Kjaerum, Director of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.  After two fruitful days of discussion with Romani women’s networks at the Roundtable discussion ‘On a Road to Equality’, the Fundamental Rights Agency highlights the need for increased Roma and Traveller involvement in policy making.   The Roundtable was held in Córdoba, Spain on the eve of the Second European Roma Summit taking place there.  The Summit brings together national and EU policy makers to discuss promoting policies in favour of the estimated 10 million strong Roma population in the European Union.

Il Times contro Berlusconi?

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 18 ottobre 2009

“La battaglia economico-commerciale del gruppo Murdoch contro il Premier a quanto pare rischia di approdare a livelli talmente bassi da toccare nel profondo la storia, la dignità e l’orgoglio del nostro Paese. Dopo l’ennesima accusa,  reclamiamo un cambiamento di rotta da parte del colosso editoriale, una reale presa di responsabilità affinché si cominci ad affrontare la questione ad armi pari”. Lo ha dichiarato Aldo Di Biagio, promotore di una manifestazione a Londra sotto la sede del Times. “E fin troppo semplice fare politica, con toni aggressivi nascondendosi dietro un’impalcatura commerciale – continua Di Biagio – così come sta facendo il magnate australiano da mesi, riflettendo sugli editoriali dei propri giornali accuse e affondi che poco hanno a che vedere con la politica commerciale e con le dinamiche imprenditoriali, ma che invece pretendono di fare politica e di animare campagne di controinformazione, prescindendo dalle costrizioni e dagli impegni morali a  cui un politico è vincolato, ma dando libero sfogo alle proprie subdole prese di posizione in nome di una malintesa libertà di stampa”. “Qualche giorno fa il presidente Obama accusava la Fox di Murdoch di non essere un network giornalistico ma un vero e proprio partito avversario – evidenzia – e questa frase solenne se trasportata dalla cornice della asa bianca a quella di Palazzo Chigi non sembrerebbe perdere veridicità, colore e tonicità”. “Su questa riflessione – sottolinea – si poggia l’essenza della protesta che insieme ai referenti del PdL di Londra sto predisponendo per le prossime ore, in questa occasione provvederemo a consegnare una nota al direttore del Times, che sarà divulgata a mezzo stampa ed in riferimento alla quale mi aspetto un riscontro ufficiale”.  “Faremo sentire la nostra voce – conclude – ad un potentato editoriale che ha tutte le forme di un estemporaneo movimento politico o giù di lì, con l’auspicio che il signor Murdoch possa avere in futuro il buon senso di scendere in politica, qualora intendesse continuare a fare opposizione ad oltranza a questa o a quella amministrazione, piuttosto che nascondere rimpianti economici o vendette editoriali dietro articoli che infamano anche la memoria di caduti su terreni ostili”.
