UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake has made this lesson clear to many of the voluntary sector online start-ups which have sought his advice. Most of them had little experience of the voluntary sector and were overly optimistic in their assumptions about the speed with which voluntary sector organisations would move to contract and implementation phases.

The Chronicle of Philanthropy has confirmed that US online workplace-giving service Charitableway is to close. The pioneering service had raised more than $43m to establish itself. Founder and former Microsoft executive Pete Mountanos attributed the closure to the fact that he “found that it took longer to build relationships and to negotiate business agreements in the nonprofit world than he had expected.” He said: “What should take two weeks in this space takes six months”.

Ten Midlands North golfers are chasing their dream

first_img22 May 2017 Ten Midlands North golfers are chasing their dream Ten women golfers are one step closer to playing with a star of the European Tour after qualifying for the national final of Bridgestone’s Chase Your Dream Trophy, run in partnership with England Golf. They came through the Midlands North regional qualifier at Elsham Golf Club, near Brigg in Lincolnshire, where Sally Sparrow, from Ullesthorpe Court Golf Club in Leicestershire led the way with a net score of 72. Sally now goes forward to the final in England Golf Week at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, in August, alongside 14-year-old Hannah Golding (Brocton Hall, Staffordshire); Heather Tuck (Elsham, Lincolnshire); Debbie Deakin (Mickleover, Derbyshire); Caroline Carryer (Trentham, Staffordshire); Karen Hix (Sleaford, Lincolnshire ); Michelle Black (Rochdale, Lancashire); Sue Lockwood (Tewkesbury Park, Gloucestershire); Jing Reade (Bridgnorth, Shropshire); and Gill Kapka (Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire ). Sally, who plays off 15, said: “It was so exciting to see my name at the top of the leaderboard. I had played a practice round and studied the course guide and the pro’s comments about how to play the holes, so the preparations paid off. I am really looking forward to the grand final now.” The 10 finalists will be joined by qualifiers from five other regional finals and the overall winner will be England’s female Handicap Golfer of the Year. The top nine players in the field will play in the pro-am of the Bridgestone Challenge, the English leg of The Challenge Tour, at Luton Hoo on 6 September. They’ll be joined by the top nine players from the companion men’s championship, making up a total of six teams in the pro-am. The most successful of these teams will go on to the pro-am of the British Masters, supported by Sky Sports, at Close House in Northumberland later in the same month, playing with a star of The European Tour. The Bridgestone Chase your Dream Trophy is an annual event open to members of England Golf’s 1,900 affiliated clubs and features separate competitions for men and women. Players can already register their interest in the 2018 Chase Your Dream Trophy by clicking here. They’ll also be eligible for a series of premium prizes including VIP tickets for the British Masters supported by Sky Sports, sets of Bridgestone tyres and much more. Entries will open in the autumn to players who have been successful in 2017 club competitions and are eligible for the regional finals.

It made a dream come true for South West players Zack Rosen, Carl Broomfield and Peter Carr. The trio eventually found themselves as guests of Bridgestone at the British Masters supported by Sky Sports, playing alongside 2010 US Open winner Graeme McDowell.

Ohio’s Crop Progress Report – May 26th, 2015

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Cloudy, cool conditions allowed planting progression in Ohio, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Regional Office. There were 5.2 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending May 24th. Prevailing humidity, cloud cover and cool temperatures yielded little opportunity for curing of dry hay, and most fields that were cut went to silage or baleage.  Planting of processing tomatoes and peppers was underway along with other specialty crops. Increased humidity is bringing concern for disease development in wheat. Scattered showers occurred over the past week, however many areas haven’t had much rainfall in recent weeks, contributing to a growing seasonal deficit.View the full report herelast_img

Uber looked into partnering with automaker for self-driving project

first_imgTags:#automotive#Autonomous#car#driverless#FCA#featured#Fiat#Self-Driving#taxi#top#Uber#Waymo For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… Related Posts Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A…center_img Uber’s self-driving project could have been a collaborative effort between the ride-hailing giant and a major automaker, according to a report by The Information.In the summer, Uber rejected an acquisition offer for the self-driving unit by an unnamed automaker. That led executives to discuss the possibility of further collaboration with automakers, to offset some of the costs of running the division.See Also: Intel to deploy 100 self-driving vehicles worldwide by end of yearUber has made self-driving partnership announcements in the past, with Daimler and Hyundai, and Toyota made a strategic investment in the company, aimed at the self-driving division. None of these have been major collaborations, the type that Waymo has with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) or Cruise Automation with General Motors.It was reported last year that FCA was looking to partner with Uber and Amazon, though neither of these partnerships have been confirmed.There have been a lot of changes at Uber since the discussions were held. An internal investigation found multiple cases of harassment, co-founder Travis Kalanick stepped down as CEO, and Waymo launched a lawsuit against the company for stealing trade secrets.The lack of leadership and lawsuit may keep automakers away from signing major partnerships with Uber. The company has reportedly lost a bit of its value in the past few months, though revenue and usage is still growing.Without a dedicated partner, Uber could find itself far behind rivals in the self-driving market. Waymo has deployed 100 Chrysler Pacifica minivans as part of its partnership with FCA, and Cruise Automation is using GM’s Chevrolet Bolt EV cars to test an employee taxi service in San Francisco.Traditional manufacturers BMW, Fiat, and Delphi have partnered with Intel and Mobileye, creating a consortium dedicated to building all the parts for a self-driving car.
