Average household Christmas spend set to drop but some areas of UK plan an increase

first_imgAverage household Christmas spend set to drop but some areas of UK plan an increase Melanie May | 26 November 2020 | News On average, UK households will be spending over £100 less on the festive season than in 2019 and 2018, but in some areas of the UK people may be able to spend more than usual, according to a survey by McCarthy & Stone.The UK-wide survey from the retirement housebuilder revealed the national average spend figure for 2020 to be £419.19. This is almost £150 less than 2018 and 2019 where the average spends were £560 and £567 respectively.The reduced spend was predominately attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic with nearly half (47.7%) of respondents citing the financial issues it has caused as a key factor and McCarthy & Stone’s data showing that 20% say they will subsequently spend ‘less’ or ‘significantly less’ than last year.  4% overall intend to spend more on Christmas this year. Advertisement The South West may see the lowest spend with people here expected to spend £374.05 – £45 lower than the average. However, the outlook looks brighter in some areas with the Welsh set to spend the most this year, at £460 per household – over £40 more than the average. Households in Scotland and Northern England will also spend more than average at £457 and £445 respectively.On a city-wide level, Liverpool is where the survey found the biggest festive spenders will be this year, with an average spend of £545.28, while at the opposite end of the spectrum, people in Sheffield plan to be the most frugal, spending £366.13.As well as some families potentially have more to spend this Christmas, the survey also found that 10% of people intend to give back this year by doing some voluntary or charity work.A spokesperson for the company said:“2020 has been a year unlike any other and has been a challenge for us all in a number of ways, particularly when it comes to our finances. As such it’s not surprising that our Christmas spending is set to drop, nor is it necessarily unexpected, particularly when more of us are focussed on saving for 2021.“However, while this may mean our Christmases might not be as decadent as last year, it offers opportunities for us to find festive joy in other ways. For instance, many of our survey respondents said that they want to spend more time with their family and friends, or get involved in more charity or voluntary work to help others, rather than spending money.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img  226 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: christmas About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

From Virginia to Wisconsin, broad front against Trump

first_imgCleveland Roanoke, Va. Milwaukeecenter_img Over 1,000 protesters answered a call by young activists on social media and took to the streets of Cleveland on Nov. 18 to tell the incoming administration that “Trump is not my president!”  Many of the marchers were on their first protest and brought signs they had made themselves. Another demonstration has been set for Dec. 3.Called together in only a few days from throughout Southwest Virginia, dozens of poor and working people came out to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. memorial statue on Nov. 19 in Roanoke to continue the fight against the pro-Wall Street Donald Trump and Mike Pence administration.The multinational participants arrived from Floyd County, Lynchburg, Radford and other locations, many driving over 100 miles round trip to join the protest, which kicked off with a loud, militant chant of “No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA!”Participants in a speakout honored Dr. King, noting that he was murdered while standing in solidarity with Memphis’ striking sanitation workers and that he also stood up to racist anti-worker politicians. Speakers included union organizers, supporters of Planned Parenthood, anti-fascist activists, longtime LGBTQ community fighters, anti-police brutality activists, Fight For $15 organizers and many more.Speakers noted that it wasn’t people of color, immigrants or Muslims who shut down coal, textile and other manufacturing plants or harmed the environment in Southwest Virginia. It was Virginia-based and Wall Street capitalists and their political servants who closed the plants.The mostly youth and students present pledged to assist and defend Muslims, refugees, women, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and workers and the poor under attack by the Trump-Pence administration.During the speakout, Roanoke police threatened participants with arrest for “unlawful assembly” for having an activity without a permit. The protesters stood up to this outrageous threat, marching into downtown Roanoke and back. The cops backed down.“We stand against Trump-Pence and any capitalist politician who perpetuates racism, sexism, xenophobia, obscene wealth for the few via exploitation of workers and plundering of public resources, the poisoning of our waters, airs and lands, wars and police terror,” said Jason Lambert of 15 Now Roanoke.People’s actions are scheduled in the coming weeks and months in Southwest Virginia, including a Dec. 10 Justice For Kionte Spencer rally and Dr. King community marches in Lexington on Jan. 14 and in Roanoke on Jan. 17. More information is at facebook.com/15NowRoanoke.Wisconsin activists pledge resistanceUpon learning that Trump won the election, community members hit the streets Nov. 8 in Milwaukee and Madison, Wis., and stayed there with a series of protests. Plans are in motion for resistance actions on the Jan. 20 inaugural date and beyond.“Since Trump’s victory, we have seen a huge increase nationally and in Wisconsin in bullying and attacks against Latinxs, Muslims, African Americans, immigrants, women, Asians, LGBT people and others,” wrote Christine Neumann-Ortiz, executive director of Voces de la Frontera in a Nov. 14 media release.“We call on religious communities to commit to offer sanctuary to people targeted for deportation. In Wisconsin, we are holding forums across the state and organizing for work stoppages and mass protest in the event that Trump moves forward with his plans. We pledge resistance and we encourage others to do likewise.”Voces de la Frontera held mass meetings in Milwaukee and Racine on Nov. 13. At both meetings community members voted to strike and mobilize massive protest actions to stop the coming attacks.The newly formed Milwaukee Coalition Against Donald Trump sponsored a march of 3,000 in downtown Milwaukee on Nov. 10, followed by a meeting of over 200 at All People’s Church on Nov. 20. There speakers announced there would be a mass rally and march Jan. 20 in Milwaukee that would kick off “100 days of resistance” paralleling Trump’s first 100 days in office.

U.S. Food Exports to Cuba Rising

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Food Exports to Cuba Rising SHARE U.S. Food Exports to Cuba Rising By NAFB News Service – Jan 29, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE The hardline rhetoric against Cuba in Washington, D.C. has led to a rift in the diplomatic ties formed in the Obama-era. However, the amount of food exports going from the U.S. to Cuba paints a very different picture. The U.S-Cuba Trade Economic Council released numbers showing that agricultural exports to Cuba totaled up over $250 million in 2017. Those numbers stretch from January to November, and they show an increase of $50 million in exports of food products and other agricultural commodities in comparison to 2016.The report from the U.S.-Cuba council shows that, in terms of overall dollar value, chicken makes up more than half of the exports to Cuba. Chicken has consistently been at the top of the list of the items that Cubans buy most from the U.S for a decade. The island country also regularly purchases U.S. soybeans and corn. Cuba largely relies on imports for agricultural products. However, U.S. policy toward Cuba doesn’t allow private financing for Cubans to buy goods from the U.S., making it tough for American producers to fully tap into the market.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 29, 2018Next articleCommentary: HSUS Accused of Abusing Women NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Brazil Restarting High-Level Trade Talks with China

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Brazil and China are looking to hold the first high-level political and economic talks they’ve had since 2015. A Reuters article says Brazil’s agricultural trade secretary expects the move will boost farm trade between the two countries. Reuters says the first meeting of the China-Brazil High-Level Coordination and Cooperation Committee is expected during the second half of this year. The meeting will likely move talks forward on permitting more Brazilian meatpackers to export to China. It should also accelerate Chinese approval of genetically modified products.China is Brazil’s largest trading partner and the top importer of Brazilian soybeans. Brazil exports to China totaled $64.2 billion last year, a 35 percent jump year-over-year, thanks in large part to the trade war between China and the U.S. China recently sent a delegation to Brazil to visit factories that produce beef, poultry, and donkey. The visual inspection is the first step in the process of allowing more Brazilian plants to export to China. Brazil has products that have been waiting two years for Chinese officials to approve them for importing.U.S. President Donald Trump expressed some optimism on Thursday about potentially reaching a trade deal with China. However, in the same breath, the New York Times says the president may consider leaving some tariffs in place even if the two sides eventually come to a landmark deal. “Without the tariffs, we wouldn’t even be talking,” Trump says in an interview with the Times, conducted after two days of trade talks wrapped up. “And I made that point very clear to them.”Trump says he plans on meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping next month, and the U.S. President says China was prepared to make “some significant changes” to Beijing’s economic policies. Some of the changes include better market access for American companies, as well as buying more American products. The president had a letter from President Xi read aloud for reporters, and it included a commitment to buy five million tons of soybeans. That caught administration officials a little off guard. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer was more guarded in his tone, saying the two sides haven’t put together the framework of an agreement yet. He did say the main achievement so far was, “that the two sides are still talking. It didn’t come off the rails.”Source: NAFB News Service Brazil Restarting High-Level Trade Talks with China Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Feb 3, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Brazil Restarting High-Level Trade Talks with China Previous articleLivestock Producers Encouraged to Attend TrainingsNext articleCommentary: It is Time to Give the Skeptics the Boot NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Following months of renovation, Foothill Family’s Duarte Center has been awarded LEED® Gold certification.When Foothill Family opened its Duarte Center in 2008, it occupied only the second floor of a bank building at 1801 Huntington Drive. Since then, the center has served thousands of children and families, focusing on early childhood development, parent education, and school- and community-based clinical, emotional, and behavioral support services, among other programs.When the 12,100-square-foot property became available to purchase in 2014, Foothill Family carefully assessed the site’s potential to help meet the region’s growing demand for services in the eastern San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys.“The investment in environmentally conscious renovations to the Duarte Center reinforces the Foothill Family mission of building brighter futures,” said Steve Allen, Foothill Family Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that healthy families are the foundation of strong communities, and environmental sustainability is tantamount to every community’s thriving future.”The Foothill Family Duarte Center re-opened in May 2015 with double the space including 12 individual therapy rooms, three family therapy and support group meeting rooms, two Parent-Child Interaction Therapy rooms, and two intake rooms. In addition, the building features expanded staff and office space, children’s activity center, health screening room, and community spaces, including a featured meeting room available for use by community partners.The Duarte Center achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes, and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.“Buildings are a prime example of how human systems integrate with natural systems,” said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. “The Foothill Family Duarte Center project efficiently uses our natural resources and makes an immediate, positive impact on our planet, which will tremendously benefit future generations to come.”Foothill Family was founded in 1926 and provides a range of community-based mental health and social services to at-risk populations in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, Glendale, and Burbank. Foothill Family Service has earned a reputation for providing high-quality services aimed at empowering families and strengthening communities. Programs include mental health and school-based counseling for children, child abuse prevention and treatment, domestic violence prevention and treatment, early child development programs, services for pregnant teens and their babies, family counseling, and youth development. Last year, more than 22,000 children and their families benefited from Foothill Family Service’s life-changing programs.
