Although he already uses segmentation to send relevant messages to certain supporters, there is room for improvement with the planned introduction of personalised email communications. Viral microsites have also performed well for the charity in terms of bringing in new supporters.

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 Researching massive growth in giving. Asked about organic v. paid-for search engine marketing, Nick explains that they adopt both approaches. The main corporate Christian Aid site is well indexed by many search engines, but the charity makes use of the instant profile that paid-for search offers. He cites the example of paying for the keyword “tsunami” after the December 2004 south Asian tsunami disaster.Nick admits that joining up online and offline marketing efforts is a real challenge for Christian Aid, like other organisations. He says that the root solution to this involves developing and applying a cohesive design, message and brand.The charity uses agencies regularly for big projects such as creating a viral marketing site, but at the moment its is handling paid-search and email in-house. These are “functions that have to be performed month-in month-out so it makes sense to do these in-house”, explains Nick.Although Christian Aid doesn’t currently use affiliate marketing, Nick is looking at launching one as part of the marketing of a new catalogue due to be launched before Christmas.On SMS fundraising Nick is waiting for the network’s costs to come down. “The costs of processing £5 online compared to £5 through a mobile network are incomparable. As soon as the mobile networks sort it out I’m sure there will be large take up”, he believes. Howard Lake | 14 September 2005 | Newslast_img read more

Suspect arrested in July slaying

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Ortiz was not a gang member, but he was standing with an associate from a gang that rivaled Rincon’s, according to Delgado. The arrest brought a “tremendous sense of relief,” Delgado said. “Gang cases are probably some of the most difficult cases to obtain incriminating evidence because they’re so tight-lipped on what they do,” Delgado said. Detectives are still working to make arrests in the cases of Frank Mitchell, 16, and Nicholas Nowell, 19, Delgado said. Mitchell was found dead in an alley on July 26. Nowell was shot and killed Aug. 15 while driving his car. Police are confident that arrests will be made in both of the cases, Delgado said. Police said that on Wednesday, in addition to the assault weapon, they also recovered four handguns and a shotgun. PASADENA — A La Crescenta resident was arrested on suspicion of murder, and an assault weapon believed to have been used in the crime was recovered during a large-scale operation Wednesday that served search warrants at 17 locations, authorities said. Luis Fernando Rincon, 24, was booked on suspicion of the July 10 killing of Pasadena resident Edgar Ortiz, 20, according to police. Rincon was one of seven people arrested when more than 200 law enforcement officers from a dozen agencies served warrants in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. Ortiz was gunned down while he stood with about five friends in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 500 block of North Marengo Avenue, police said. He was struck in the torso by one of about 10 shots allegedly fired from a pickup truck containing several gang members, according to Sgt. Tom Delgado of the Pasadena Police Department. Lab tests will confirm whether the assault weapon used to kill Ortiz is the same one that police recovered Wednesday, Delgado said. Also arrested were Enrique Dela Torre, 25, of Pasadena, an alleged parolee-at-large; Fernando Esparza, 26, of Pasadena, who was booked on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder; Victor Flores, 26, a suspected felon with a weapon; George Olvera, 24, of Fontana, for an alleged drug violation; and Daniel Villalobos, 23, of La Crescenta, on a misdemeanor warrant violation. Another suspect, a 15-year-old, was arrested for an unrelated violation, Delgado said. — Marshall Allen can be reached at (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4461, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Report: Burnley 1 Southampton 1

first_imgBurnley 1 Southampton 1: Gabbiadini grabs late leveller Stephen Creek Last updated 1 year ago 01:02 25/2/2018 Sean Dyche - cropped Getty Images Burnley missed out on their first Premier League win since December 12 as Manolo Gabbiadini struck late on for Southampton. Manolo Gabbiadini scored his first Premier League goal of 2018 to earn Southampton a 1-1 draw against Burnley that lifts them out of the relegation zone.The Italian struck in the 90th minute of the game to deny Burnley a result that would have ended a run of 10 league games without a win for Sean Dyche’s men.After Leicester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke City earlier in the day, Burnley went into the game knowing a win would move them three points clear of Claude Puel’s Foxes but they struggled to break down a resurgent Southampton side for over an hour.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Mauricio Pellegrino’s Saints arrived at Turf Moor having lost just one of their previous five Premier League games and they looked determined to eke out a result, but the lack of a cutting edge in the final third looked set to let them down, as it has done so many times this season.Burnley struck first in the 67th minute when Aaron Lennon, who provided the home side with a threat down both wings throughout the afternoon, whipped the ball into the box, where Ashley Barnes applied the final touch to take it over the line with his head.But Gabbiadini latched onto Guido Carrillo’s pass in the Burnley area and applied a clinical finish to leave the home crowd disappointed at the final whistle.FULL TIME: #BFC 1-1 #SaintsFCLate drama sees the visitors take a point at Turf Moor thanks to @Mgabbia23’s strike.— Southampton FC (@SouthamptonFC) February 24, 2018Burnley’s former England winger Lennon showed good technique as he volleyed the first shot of the game from the edge of the Southampton box into the arms of goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.The visitors responded with a sweeping attacking move, Nathan Redmond darting to the edge of the Burnley penalty area before threading a pass to Dusan Tadic, whose shot with the outside of his left foot was blocked by the legs of Clarets defender Ben Mee.Burnley should have taken the lead when Matthew Lowton’s marauding run reached the by-line and he crossed to Barnes, who cut the ball back to Lennon, but the diminutive playmaker saw his shot blocked after 28 minutes.After a spell of Southampton pressure early in the second half, James Ward-Prowse tried a raking, low corner to the edge of the penalty area, where Redmond arrived to meet it but his shot failed to penetrate a crowd of Burnley defenders.Jeff Hendrick raced clear of the Southampton defence just before the hour mark but McCarthy made himself big and pulled off a brave block at the Republic of Ireland international’s feet before the loose ball was sent over the crossbar by Ashley Westwood.The momentum was with Dyche’s men and Barnes should have made it count when Westwood’s looping cross picked him out in the box but his header lacked power and accuracy, trickling wide of to the right of the goal.He was given another chance moments later when Lennon’s cross was met by the boot of Johann Berg Gudmundsson and, after McCarthy’s parry found the head of Hendrick, Barnes bundled the ball over the line from point blank range.PIC: Ashley Barnes scrambles the Clarets ahead. Can they hold on?— Burnley FC (@BurnleyOfficial) February 24, 2018Burnley’s claims for a penalty were waved away when McCarthy appeared to handle the ball outside the area moments later and the let-off allowed Southampton to chase an equaliser in the closing stages.Substitute Josh Sims carved out space for himself 20 yards from goal and his curling right-footed shot looked destined for the top right corner of the net before Nick Pope palmed it onto the post.But there was still time for more and Sims’ cross found Carrillo, whose pass across the Burnley area was pounced upon by Gabbiadini and he took a touch before slamming the ball home from eight yards to ensure the points were shared. Key Opta stats:- Burnley are winless in their last 11 Premier League games (D6 L5), their longest such run in the competition since January 2010 (12 games).- Southampton have not lost any of the last nine Premier League games in which they have started the day in the relegation zone (W4 D5), since a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool in December 2012.- Saints have won just once in their last 15 Premier League matches (D8 L6).- Manolo Gabbiadini netted his first Premier League goal in 15 appearances and first since bagging a brace against Newcastle in October 2017.- Ashley Barnes netted his fourth Premier League goal of the season, no Burnley player has scored more this term (level with Chris Wood).- The Clarets have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last five home PL games, this after keeping four shutouts in the five games before this run. read morelast_img read more

Crazy VAR killed our momentum – Trippier

first_imgTottenham Hotspur Crazy VAR killed Tottenham’s momentum in FA Cup win, says Trippier Stephen Creek 08:59 1/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments() kierantrippier-cropped Getty Images Tottenham Hotspur FA Cup Rochdale v Tottenham Hotspur Rochdale Spurs ran out 6-1 winners in their FA Cup replay, but the defender felt a lot of excitement was lost amid the repeated usage of video replays Kieran Trippier felt the use of the video assistant referee sucked momentum out of Tottenham’s 6-1 FA Cup replay win over Rochdale at Wembley.The England defender was at the centre of a controversial first half in which referee Paul Tierney paused the game for lengthy periods to consult VAR over key decisions.After Erik Lamela had an early goal ruled out by VAR, the technology was used to award Trippier a penalty – but Son Heung-min’s spot-kick was disallowed due to the staggered nature of his run-up, the replay system again intervening.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis!

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Lucas Moura had a penalty appeal waved away after another stoppage for VAR, and, after Mauricio Pochettino expressed his sympathy with the officials over the incidents, Trippier told BT Sport that the delays affected players.”It was crazy,” he said. “Obviously the decisions took some momentum out of the game but the referee has to make the decision so we have to wait.”Rochdale manager Keith Hill took a sympathetic view, telling BBC Sport: “It’s complicated with VAR. It’s not fair on the referee.”The fourth official was explaining to us what was going on but the referee needs a bit of help.”It was confusing. Now I have been a part of what VAR is, I feel sorry for the referee. I think the decisions need to be explained to the crowd. The visuals need to be used better.”I hope that eventually they explain it to the supporters.”The stop-start opening period ended 1-1 but Spurs took control after the break, racing ahead thanks to a hat-trick from Fernando Llorente, another goal for Son and a first Tottenham goal for substitute Kyle Walker-Peters.The result was emphatic but Trippier was quick to praise Tottenham’s League One visitors.”We created a lot of chances in the first half,” said the full-back. “We have to give credit to Rochdale, they made it difficult again – as they did in the first game.”They had one chance and they took it but every chance we had we took.”last_img read more
