CTT service “already compliant” with new credit card recording requirements

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Charity Technology Trust (CTT) reports that its online payment system is fully compliant with the new requirements concerning the use, collection and storage of the CSV or CVV number on the reverse of credit cards. The announcement follows concerns raised by the Institute of Fundraising and other fundraisers about charities’ potential difficulties in complying with the new requirements.The new rules state that CVV numbers must be collected in order to guarantee the banks accepting the transaction, but that they must not be stored. This could prove difficult for charities whose paper-based Gift Aid and other donation forms would make such removal of data difficult.In an email to clients CTT’s Finance Director James Redhead said he wanted “to make clear that the CTT/RSM online payment systems are both fully compliant and already configured to deal with this requirement.” Advertisement Tagged with: Digital CTT’s payment system is offered in partnership with payments and billing solutions provider RSM Group, which has provided a detailed statement explaining how it complies with the new requirements.“All transaction data entry, including card data and CVV, takes place on a secure, certified, 128bit SSL encrypted web-page. All data is encrypted when transmitted across the internet. Card data is sent directly to the payment gateway for processing,” said the RSM spokesperson.“Complete card data and CVV information is not available to any client or user of the CTT/RSM systems.”  22 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Howard Lake | 30 March 2006 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis CTT service “already compliant” with new credit card recording requirementslast_img read more

Hezbollah analyzes Syrian crisis

first_imgThe following observations about Syria are excerpted from a conversation between Ernesto Gomez Abascal, a journalist, writer and former ambassador from Cuba to several Middle East countries, and Ammar al-Mussawi, director of International Relations for Hezbollah. Hezbollah is a popular political organization representing the Shiite Muslim community as well as a national liberation organization defending the people of Lebanon. WW managing editor John Catalinotto did the translation from Spanish. The entire interview is on lahaine.org.Ernesto Gomez Abascal: What is your evaluation of what is happening in Syria?Ammar al-Mussawi: Now it is Syria that faces a war led by the United States. The goal is the same [as with the 2006 Israeli invasion of Lebanon] — to create a new Greater Middle East controlled by the U.S. and Israel. Behind it all is the control of energy resources during the 21st century, where gas will play the most important role. Looking at the map, we see that Syrian territory is the natural path to reach the Mediterranean ports through gas pipelines from Iran, Iraq and Qatar, where the largest reserves are. Additionally, large deposits of gas have been discovered in Syria and Lebanon.The Qatari monarchy has a special interest in this; it has huge gas reserves and its leaders have pretensions of becoming a great power. The largest U.S. military base in the Gulf is located there. The television station Al Jazeera has become the mouthpiece of political reaction, imperialism and Zionism. It is blatantly intervening in Syria. Why doesn’t it put that effort behind defending the Palestinians and into the fight against Zionism?Saudi Arabia does the same. We are seeing how in some mosques in that country the leaders are asking the faithful to make monetary contributions to help the opposition in Syria. They have never done that to help the Palestinian resistance.We have the view that the situation in Syria is complicated, but the government has the capacity to resist and will defeat the aggressors. When terrorist activities began last year, the opposition and the imperialists said that in three months the government would fall. Then they said six, but they are no longer setting deadlines. The latest Israeli intelligence assessment says that Bashar al-Assad will last for years.Unlike what happened in Libya, the armed forces are holding together in Syria; they maintain their combat effectiveness. There are only individual defections, personal ones. Nor did the enemy succeed in provoking defections from the embassies, so the European Union countries, after wearing themselves out trying to achieve this, decided to expel the ambassadors.The opposition, on the other hand, is deeply divided and has failed to unite despite all efforts made in many meetings of the so-called “friends of Syria.” There are also many differences between opponents who are inside and those abroad. The internal opposition is against foreign intervention, while those outside request it. Furthermore, all in the opposition want to be the leader. The war against Syria is exposing the hypocrisy and double standards of Obama and the imperialists, who say they are fighting terrorism but are supporting Al Qaeda, the Salafists and extremists who commit crimes in Syria.Impact on LebanonEGA: What influence does what is happening in Syria have in Lebanon?AM: Of course, what happens in Syria impacts on Lebanon. Hezbollah is working hard to make sure no harm is done to Syria from Lebanon. We cannot succeed in this completely, as the Future Movement and the March 14 Movement, directed by Hariri, are Syria’s enemies and support the armed opposition. We are acting with patience and caution, trying to avoid confrontations as far as possible, but if they want to take things to the extreme, this can produce an explosion that would cause a confrontation. We try to maintain an acceptable balance at the political level. In the search for such a balance, we know that the internal correlation of forces is favorable to us, but we do not lose sight of our fundamental objective: the resistance to Israel.EGA: What position do the countries bordering Syria take?AM: The other countries around Syria are acting according to their interests. Turkey has ambitions but also fears. The government has been working for a U.N. resolution granting a cover for military action against Damascus. Opposition from Russia and China has been very important. The raid by Turkey’s F-4 Phantom aircraft over Syrian territory, which was shot down by Syria’s air defense at Latakia, was neither accidental nor a result of an error. It was a provocation and an attempt to probe Syrian defenses. And it got a clear answer.Russia and Iran have given serious warnings to Turkey and are very concerned about the establishment of a U.S. radar base on Turkish territory. Clearly, this base is not being put there to protect Turkey. The Turkish government also has internal problems and has not reached a consensus to wage war on Syria; there is opposition even among the military.In Jordan, the monarchy is addressing the issue carefully, afraid it will aggravate the internal contradictions and that the conflict in Syria could reach into its own territory, so it is not acting openly. However, it allows U.S. and British special services to train Syrian opposition groups there.The Iraqi government is in favor of Syria and supports Bashar al-Assad’s government, but the border is very long and difficult to control, and can be penetrated by opposition elements.Iran has always provided support to Syria because they are allies. Russia is also giving full support.Israel, in our opinion, is not going to get involved in the Syrian conflict, at least not directly, as it doesn’t suit their interests.In summary, our view is optimistic about Syria, but the struggle will be long and complex.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Farm Bill Progress Being Made in the Senate, Stalemate in the…

first_img SHARE Farm Bill Progress Being Made in the Senate, Stalemate in the House By Gary Truitt – Mar 28, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bill Progress Being Made in the Senate, Stalemate in the House    Farm Bill Progress Being Made in the Senate, Stalemate in the HouseFarm Bill progress is being made, but only on one side of Capitol Hill. The House has started work, but sharp differences over the nutrition title have the process mired in political name calling. In the Senate, ag leadership says they are on track. Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly, a member of the Senate Ag Committee, has been saying for months that the work on the new Farm Bill has been going on behind closed doors. Now that work may have paid off in quick action by the Senate.Senate Ag Committee Chairman Pat RobertsSenate Ag Committee Chairman Pat Roberts says the Senate could pass a bill by the end of April, “We are on track and could have a bill passed by the end of April. I think the committee can put a bill together in one morning, we did last time; and, if I can convince leadership to give us 3 days of floor time, we can have it passed by the end of April.”But the Senate Bill is going to have an approach quite a bit different than the House version, especially on the subject of SNAP. This means long conference committee negotiations. Roberts urged House leadership to be bipartisan, “We have to have 60 votes in the Senate. This has to be a bipartisan bill.” Roberts added that he and ranking member Debbie Stabenow have experience in putting together a bipartisan Farm Bill, “This is not our first rodeo.”Most of the talk this past week on the Farm Bill was in the House, as differences arose between what House Ag Committee republicans would like to see in the Farm Bill and the frustration from House democrats on the Ag Committee on some of those issues. The House Ag Democrats have the most issues with the SNAP reform proposals that House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway would like to see in the House version of the bill.House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway and ranking member Collin Peterson kicked off the two-week Congressional recess by taking jabs at one another over why farm bill talks are at a standstill over proposed changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, former chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, told POLITICO on Monday that unless there are “real” reforms to reduce the number of SNAP recipients — beyond what Conaway is reportedly considering — the farm bill should just be temporarily reauthorized.HAT’s Eric Pfeiffer is scheduled to talk with Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly this week.

Parliament close to adopting draconian media bill

first_img News Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent News Organisation RSF_en December 4, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Parliament close to adopting draconian media bill June 13, 2019 Find out more Receive email alerts The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa to go further Help by sharing this information center_img KenyaAfrica Follow the news on Kenya News November 27, 2020 Find out more Reports KenyaAfrica Kenyan media group trolled by pro-ruling party activists Reporters Without Borders believes that a proposed new media law currently before Kenya’s parliament would, if adopted, represent a big step backwards for press freedom in a country known for diverse and outspoken media. The “Kenya Communications Amendment Bill 2008,” also known as the “ICT Bill,” would reinforce government control over media companies and programme content.“It is particularly shocking that the political class is uniting behind the ICT Bill while journalists are unanimous in criticising it as draconian and vindictive,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the authorities to respect and reinforce independent regulatory bodies and not subordinate them to a minister’s discretionary powers.” The press freedom organisation added: “This bill must not be adopted as it stands. We call for it to be withdrawn and reexamined in consultation with media professionals.”Currently in its third reading – the penultimate legislative stage before adoption by President Mwai Kibaki – the ICT Bill provides for heavy fines and prison sentences for press offences. It also envisages the creation of a government-appointed “communications commission” that would be in charge of granting broadcast licences. The information minister would be empowered to “issue policy guidelines” to the commission although it is described as “independent,” while article 86 of the bill gives the minister the unilateral power to interrupt broadcasts, dismantle radio and TV stations and tap telephones. The internal security minister, for his part, is empowered to seize broadcasting equipment.If adopted, the ICT Bill would even give the information minister power to control programme content, as the commission he appoints would also be responsible for ensuring the “good taste” of broadcasts.David Makali, the head of the Nairobi-based Media Institute, said: “Culturally diverse societies such as Kenya do not have a universal value of what is good or abhorrent, and the discretion of the editor, guided by professional ethics and the existing laws on public nuisance and morality, is in our view adequate.”But Kenyan Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka insisted last week that the ICT Bill would reinforce the media’s “professionalism.”The bill has sparked an outcry among Kenyan journalists and in the international community and, on 1 December, the Media Institute and Kenya Editors Guild called for it to be withdrawn to allow for more consultations. If it is adopted in its current form, the Media Institute has threatened to challenge its constitutionality.“Regulation of professional or editorial content should be left to the professionally inclined mechanisms of the existing Media Council,” Makali said. “Given this government’s track record of relations with the media over the past six years, the media has cause to be apprehensive that the amendments as proposed will seriously curtail media freedom.”Reporters Without Borders points out that in a report issued on 6 March – entitled “How far to go? Kenya’s media caught in the turmoil of a failed election” – it urged the Kenyan authorities to be less mistrustful and hostile towards the media and to help them strengthen their ability to regulate themselves, work together and train journalists.

Full time cardiac care now available in Limerick

first_imgWhatsApp Print Email NewsLocal NewsFull time cardiac care now available in LimerickBy admin – October 31, 2012 465 HEART attack patients will, from this week, be able to receive 24/7 treatment in Limerick instead of being sent to hospitals in Cork or Galway after 6pm on weekdays and on weekends.Following an inspection last week, the team and facilities that will provide the vital cardiac care at the Mid-West Regional Hospital in Dooradoyle have been given the thumbs up to start work on a round-the-clock basis.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The care team and the facilities to provide treatment for a particular type of cardiac incident have been in place for some time, but the hospital authorities were awaiting the inspection that would allow the full-time service to start.Until that happened, patients who presented with a specific type of attack could not be dealt with at the regional hospital. The HSE has emphasised that patients who suffered from conventional cardiac arrest were treated in Limerick at all times.It is understood that the only remaining work to be done to clear the way for a full service is to organise rosters and they are due to be in place this week.The HSE confirmed to Limerick Post this week that, following recent meetings with Professor Kieran Daly, the national clinical lead of the Acute Services Programme, it has been agreed that the Mid-Western Regional Hospital can assume a 24/7 role.Limerick TD, Kieran O’Donnell, who had made representations to Health Minister James Reilly on the matter in recent weeks, said: “I have worked extremely hard to achieve this outcome since it emerged that a new protocol led to patients with STEMI-type heart attacks being directed to Galway University Hospital.“This is about Limerick people and people in the wider Mid West region having parity within the system, and we deserve nothing less.  The situation where people could not be treated in Limerick should never have come about,” he said.“I congratulate the management and clinical staff in Limerick Regional Hospital, and all involved.  This is a very good news story for Limerick and the Mid West,” he added.

Southern pine beetles infesting local pine forests

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Print Article Book Nook to reopen Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Published 3:00 am Wednesday, September 13, 2017 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The infestation has occurred along the ridge that runs through the northern Pike County area but could spread southward if it is not contained and stopped.Deborah Huggins-Davis, president of the Pike County Treasure Forest Association, said a small infestation was found in pines on her property.“We were blessed that the infestation was found early and we only lost a few trees,” Huggins Davis said. “A drone was first used to try to detect any infestation of Southern pine beetles; then a pilot spotted it. Drones can be used but the thinking on the state level is that the drones have not been perfected enough to be absolutely dependable.”Huggins-Davis said when a pine forest is infected and especially in a small area, it can be difficult getting a logger to take the job.“Nobody wants to fool with it,” she said. “All of that heavy equipment has to be hauled in and it’s expensive to move it and the area to be cut is usually not that large. Also, there’s no market for dead wood. So, getting the infested trees cut can be a problem.”Tommy Peacock, owner of Peacock Timber Company, said some pulpwood companies are not buying any more dead wood and others want dead wood mixed in with green wood.“Southern pine beetles can kill 20 or 30 acres of pines real quick,” he said. “The best thing timber owners can do is keep and eye on the trees. Little white balls of sap will indicate beetles are feeding and, when they cut a circle around the tree, the tree will die. Timber is sold by weight and the trees will lose a lot of weight in a short period of time and the property owner will take a big money hit.”For more information or to report an infestation, call 334-335-5712. “Landowners can look for signs of infestation by walking their pine plantations,” Lowery said. “If the needles look brown around the outer edge of a circle of pines and the needles are dead inside the circle, then the trees are infested.”Lowery said the infestation could be stopped if the trees are cut and a buffer established around the area.“The trees in the affected area have to be cut and a buffer of at least one-and-a-half to two times as wide as the tallest tree, has to be cut,” he said. “Southern pine beetles don’t fly; they glide from tree to tree so the damage is not as widespread.” Sponsored Content Skip Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Lowery said Southern pine beetles are present in pines all the time but the pines have a natural resistance to the pests.However, Lowery said what has happened is the drought conditions that Alabama experienced, beginning April 26, 2016 and lasting for 60 straight weeks, have weaken the pines’ defense to the beetles, so the state is seeing infestations.“We are hoping for an early frost and that will put a stop to a lot of the infestation,” he said.Lowery said 200-plus pine forests in Pike, Butler and Crenshaw counties have been affected by Southern pine beetle infestation.

Landowners whose pines have been identified via flyovers as showing signs of infestation are being notified by mail and encouraged to take the necessary steps to have the trees removed to prevent further loss.
