AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 A survey by independent postal advice and management company ONEPOST has found that UK consumers expect charities to be more environmentally friendly, and that some of them say they are more likely to support charities who act in this way.The research found that 36% of consumers are more likely to support charities who act in an environmentally friendly manner, and 30% of consumers are more likely to support charities whose direct mail is environmentally friendly.The research supports recent findings from the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) sustainability tracking studies, which ONEPOST sponsors. In January 2010 research showed that 33% of respondents believed the charity sector to be very environmentally friendly. That figure rose in September 2010 to 38% of respondents, the largest rise in rating for any industry sector.ONEPOST Marketing Manager, Luan Wise, said: “Direct mail dominates the media mix for charities”, and offered tips on how charities can demonstrate their environmental credentials.* Include a recycle logo on the outside of your mail pack.  Research shows that this gives a clear indication that the charity is environmentally friendly, with good business ethics.* Let your supporters know what you are doing and why.  Include a short message on the reverse of the envelope explaining the importance of direct mail in raising funds and how little the direct mail pack costs the charity.  Add your environmental message and consumers will respond more positively.* Think carefully about the use of poly-wrap – 41% of consumers regard poly-wrapped mail as a non green signal.  We would encourage ‘mailing naked’ if there are no inserts.* Use a downstream access (DSA) postal solution – DSA mail arrives within 2-3 days against up to 7 days from Royal Mail’s Mailsort 3 discounted bulk mail product.  You can get your fundraising message out and receive donations much quicker.* Save money on your postage costs by sending environmentally friendly direct mail.  Additional discounts (up to 0.7p per item) are available for mailings meeting a number of criteria which include the use of recycled paper, inclusion of a recycle logo and data cleansing best practice.www.onepost.co.uk  31 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Consumers expect charities to be environmentally friendly, says ONEPOST surveylast_img read more

Farm Bureau Thanks General Assembly for Passage of Soil Productivity…

first_img SHARE According to the bipartisan Legislative Services Agency, SB 319 will save Indiana farmers from paying an additional $57.4 million next year and each year thereafter. The bill will retain the long-standing soil productivity factors for the 2013 assessment (pay 2014) of farmland. It also directs the Department of Local Government Finance, in cooperation with the Purdue College of Agriculture, to develop and submit to the General Assembly recommendations and justifications for any proposed changes in the methodology used to establish soil productivity factors that adjust the base value of farmland. Facebook Twitter Farm Bureau Thanks General Assembly for Passage of Soil Productivity Bill Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Thanks General Assembly for Passage of Soil Productivity Bill Facebook Twittercenter_img Indiana Farm Bureau thanks the Indiana General Assembly for its quick and unanimous passage of Senate Bill 319, which addresses unreasonable increases in the state’s soil productivity factor proposed by the state’s Department of Local Government Finance. The soil productivity factor is one component in the complex calculation used to assess property tax. The bipartisan bill passed the Indiana House today on a 97-0 vote.  SB 319 did not receive any negative votes in either house, which clearly indicates that the factors need to be further evaluated by the Department of Local Government Finance. SB 319 now goes to the governor for his signature.

Jean Leasing, Greg Walker, and John Waterman, who authored the bill, and the House sponsor and co-sponsor, Reps.

Farm Bureau also thanks House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long for fast-tracking SB 319 that will allow it to be enacted before the March 1, 2013, assessment date.last_img read more

Wi-fi? Maybe you, not me

first_img Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 10:00 pm Saturday, September 20, 2008 I was in Montgomery. I had no idea what a “local” call would be.“It’s a 256 number.”That was not a local call so the manager of the store could be of no further assistance.Back in the car, I was in my comfort zone. “Maybell” has rollup windows, gears that shift, a clutch, manual steering and brakes and a radio with a knob.Otherwise, I’m a woman out of her time.But it comes as no surprise that the world has left me far behind.I’m one whose first telephone conversation was on two tin cans linked with a waxed string. I’m one who learned to type on a manual Royal with round keys and an ink ribbon.I know that I’m out of touch with this high tech world that has made pay phones and Brownie cameras the dinosaurs of my day.That was brought home to me some time ago when Sis and I didn’t know that a cell phone actually knows when you cross from one time zone into another.We thought that we had entered the Twilight Zone and actually lost an hour of our lives.Then, we also didn’t know that televisions at motels can be set to turn off at a designated time.We were certain that the innkeeper of that quaint, historic hotel must have come in with a pass key while we were asleep and turned off the television because neither of us had.How dare that man come in where we were sleeping in our pajamas!My son explained those things to me.He also said Sis and I should not be allowed to go out alone. We are just too out of touch with today’s world.I did not tell him that my first, and only, attempt to use my check card resulted in the ATM machine gobbling up my out-of-date card.Nor did I tell him of my attempt to punch in a friend’s check card at the ATM machine.“I’ll get out and do it,” said Bannie who was on the passenger side.“No, just tell me. I can do it.”I followed her instructions. “Punch this button and that button and, no, not that button. The other one.”Instead of a $10 bill shooting out, the screen admonished me: “Too Slow. Try Again!”Bannie got out and did it.Just the other day, the marquee at Grandmaw’s kitchen caught my eye. Wi Fi.That’s an odd way to abbreviate the days of the week, I thought.And, I wondered what specials Grandmaw’s was having on Wednesdays and Fridays. So, I asked around and nobody knew. Finally, I asked at the restaurant. One of the owners called to tell me that Wi Fi is Wireless Internet Free Inside.“What?” I said.“That means that you can bring your computer inside and connect to the Internet. It’s an “in” thing. Like going to the coffee shop and sitting around logging in on the computer.”“My word in the garden!”That reminds me of those “hip’ and high falutin’ folks out in Aspen who sat around the outdoor cafés reading the newspaper with big dogs on a leash lying at their feet.Guess, Wi Fi is now the “hip” thing to do.Well, at least that’s better than sitting around with the dogs.At least, the computers don’t Wi Fi on the floor.WiFi You Might Like Messenger launches new website Don’t let your eyes deceive you … www.troymessenger.com has a new look.

I don’t have any idea what to expect.”With the opportunity to vote absentee also comes the possibility of illegal absentee voting.According to the Code of Alabama, any person who willfully changes an absentee voter’s ballot so that it does not reflect the voter’s true ballot, any person who willfully votes more than once by absentee ballot in the same election, any person who willfully votes for another voter or falsifies absentee ballot applications so as to vote absentee or any person who solicits, encourages urges or otherwise promotes illegal absentee voting, shall be guilty, upon conviction, of a Class C felony.

Merrill has extended the opportunity for any qualified voter who is concerned about contracting or spreading the coronavirus to cast an absentee ballot rather than go to the polls during the municipal elections on August 25.With the election less than two weeks away, voters are taking advantage of that opportunity.With 22 candidates vying for the six seats on the Brundidge City Council, voter participation was expected to be high. The opportunity to vote absentee is already proving that to be true, said Linda Faust, Brundidge city clerk. Any person who willfully aids any person unlawfully to vote an absentee ballot, any person who knowingly and unlawfully votes an absentee ballot and any voter who votes both an absentee and a regular ballot at any election shall be similarly punished. Nothing in the Code is to be construed to impede or inhibit organized legal efforts to encourage voter participation or to discourage a candidate from encouraging electors to lawfully vote by absentee ballot.August 20 is the last day to apply for an absentee ballot for the municipal election.The last day to vote absentee is August 24.  Mail-in votes must be postmarked August 24 and received by noon on August 25.On municipal election day, masks will be encouraged and available for those who don’t have them.
