*  Whose aid? Whose influence? China, emerging donors and the silent revolution in development assistance | Eldis
The term 'emerging donors' is used as a shorthand to contrast states such as China, India and Brazil with members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC), who are also referred to as 'established donors'. This article analyses the background against which these emerging donors are increasing their aid and what has happened to the pledges by donors to increase aid, reduce conditionalities, enhance coordination and alignment, and reform the aid architecture. The conclusions point out that emerging donors are not overtly attempting either to overturn the rules of multilateral development assistance or to replace them. Rather, they are offering alternatives to aid-receiving countries, thus weakening the bargaining position of western donors, and exposing standards and processes that are out of date and ineffectual. The result is a serious challenge to the existing multilateral development assistance regime. ...

'Unproductive?' 'Achieving nothing?' Starr's investigations so far have resulted in at least 29 indictments, over a dozen malefactors who pleaded guilty or were tried and convicted, several more already serving prison sentences. Disgusting is having Senator Lott sell his vote and his political influence to the tobacco industry and do their bidding by killing the vote that might have saved hundreds of thousands of lives. Disgusting is Senator Lott accepting money from those people who fear campaign contribution reform and killing congressional reform of campaign contributions. If only Congress and the new media could break themselves of the self-deluding habit of grasping on to and boosting any news, irrespective of its importance, that would give them a self-preening moment in front of the television cameras, or a potential boost in paper sales. Can anyone tell me why, when the cheaper, faster citizens' task-force-approved plan to replace this dinosaur eyesore with a traffic-efficient, aesthetic

Roth: Yes or no please. In response to calls for him to return the campaign contributions from Congressman Charlie Rangel, Congressman Steve Kagen issued the following response: "I'm working hard to bring jobs back to Wisconsin and responsibility back to Washington, and if that means leadership in the House of Representatives must change - so be it.". Congressman Kagen does not address the campaign contributions nor does he say if he believes Rangel should remain as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. In response to Kagen's statement, State Representative Roger Roth, who previously called on Kagen to return donations from Rangel, issued the following statement:. "Congressman Kagen's non-response to calls to return the $21,000 he's received from scandal-plagued Congressman Charlie Rangel is exactly why people in Northeast Wisconsin are so frustrated with Kagen and all of Washington. People are hungry for straight talk and honest answers, and they are sick and tired of politics as usual. ...

*  Why NERC withdrew financial support for NECAN - SweetCrudeReports
NERC said recently in Abuja that its decision to withdraw its financial support for NECAN was informed by its regulatory stand as well as industry position that NECAN should have its operational independency, away from the regulator's control.. It also maintained that funding NECAN would amount to regulatory partiality whereas industry operators could interpret the gesture as an unwholesome bias to other players in the sector. Such act, NERC explained would be unhealthy to the development of a value-driven electricity market in the country.. Chairman of NERC, Dr. Sam Amadi made this clarification available to THISDAY, following recent charges against it by the interim Chairman of NECAN, Chief Tomi Akingbogun, that it has withdrawn its proposed financial support for the network.. NECAN was initiated by NERC to advance consumers' stakes in Nigeria's electricity industry. The network by the intention of the regulator is expected to place ...

*  Food and drink sponsorship of children's sport in Australia: who pays? : Health Promotion International - oi
The creation of health promoting sports clubs may support the promotion and adoption of healthy behaviours by children. Sponsorship is one aspect of clubs, with potential influence on clubs and their participants. In particular, sponsorship influences brand awareness and attitudes, so that the sponsorship of children's sport by unhealthy food companies may contribute to food preferences and poor eating habits. This study aimed to determine the nature and extent of food and beverage sponsorship of children's sport. Sports clubs (n = 108) for the nine most popular sports for children aged 5-14 were randomly sampled from three large geographical areas in Australia. A purpose-designed telephone questionnaire was developed to determine the extent of sponsorship. Experts from different fields were approached (n = 10) to generate a consensus on the elements of sponsors that are more/less health promoting. The survey response rate was 99%. Of the 347 sponsors identified, 17% were food or beverage ...

*  MP pushes for more financial support | Gawler Bunyip
MEMBER for Light Tony Piccolo is fighting for Munno Para Primary School to receive additional State Government funding.. Mr Piccolo said the school faces challenges with its high percentage of students living with disabilities, facilitating a need for greater financial support.. The school currently has 350 students, of which 73 are verified as living with a disability.. "Munno Para Primary School…is situated in an area that, unfortunately, has not received a great deal of investment from either the private sector or government, and is only funded at this point in time as a level-two school," Mr Piccolo said.. "I have taken that matter up with the Minister for Education because, given the level of disadvantage at that school, I think it should be funded at a higher level.. "I understand that the minister, through the department, has asked for that funding to be reviewed.". A Department of Education and Child Development spokesperson said the school has since been reviewed, ...
