Architect eigen huis (Dutch for architect own house) has designed a contemporary barn house on the domain of castle Duivenvoorde, Voorschoten, the Netherlands. The location is adjacent to a beautiful dense forest, which is part of a natural reserve. The house is placed alongside the forest to emphasize the contrast between the open landscape and the forest experience. The rooms in the house benefit from entirely different views on every side of the house.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil / De ArchitectuurguideIn the morning coffee is taken on the porch. The lower morning sun enters underneath the adjacent tree canopy. The roof of the porch has mobile slats that can serve as a rainproof surface. They can also be opened to let more light enter the house. With a large window of 8,5 meters wide, the kitchen provides a panoramic view of the ever changing forest. The architect also made the design for fixed interior elements, including the kitchen.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil / De ArchitectuurguideThe living room is west-orientated and has a pleasant size.

CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) has teamed up with St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and York Minster to create a revolutionary new Gift Aid Charity Voucher.The face value of each voucher includes tax already reclaimed from HM Revenue & Customs through Gift Aid. So for £100, UK taxpayers can buy a book of 20 Gift Aid Charity Vouchers worth a total of £122.40 to distribute to their favourite charities whenever they choose. The vouchers were developed initially to help churches enable their parishioners to make tax-efficient donations into the collecting plate.As well as using the Gift Aid Charity Vouchers to donate in places of worship, they can be given to any UK registered charity, to scout groups, schools, fundraising events and sponsored walks, and to appeals such as the Disasters Emergency Committee. And unlike usual Gift Aid donations they can even be made anonymously.

Led by fundraising academic Professor Adrian Sargeant, the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy will examine the social and psychological drivers of giving and derive practical applications for fundraisers from them.He will be joined at the Centre by Stephen Pidgeon, Visiting Professor of Direct Response Fundraising, and Professor Jen Shang who will lead on respectively knowledge dissemination and knowledge generation and research. Professor Sargeant will lead on action-based education.[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]”assembling the largest and highest quality alliance of academic researchers, governmental agencies and civil sector partners to improve our understanding of philanthropic growth”[/quote]Changing attitudes to philanthropyThe Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy (CSP) aims both to investigate and change attitudes to philanthropy. Professor Sargeant points out that the proportion of wealth that people give to charity has barely changed in 40 years.He said:“The drivers of giving are relatively under-explored resulting in a paucity of high quality information being available to academics, policy makers, philanthropists and, of course, fundraisers. Our aim is to develop the evidence base for all these stakeholders, assembling the largest and highest quality alliance of academic researchers, governmental agencies and civil sector partners to improve our understanding of philanthropic growth and enhance its sustainable practice in the UK and around the world.

And what will be fundamentally different about us is that we’re not solely interested in studying philanthropy – we want to grow it, not only in this country, but around the world.”Three initial projectsThe Centre will begin with three ‘signature projects’.A global panel study of how wealthy individual philanthropists grow into their new role and develop their philanthropy. By combining understanding of human development, neural psychology, clinical psychology and social psychology it is designed to assist these individuals in “achieving more meaningful and sustainable impact from their giving”.Professor Shang explained: “It would be great if every new philanthropist knew the challenges they would face in developing their philanthropy and could draw on an academic analysis of the experience of their peers as they began their individual quest for impact.”A panel study of donor behaviour will explore how and why a supporter’s journey with a charity changes over time.A variety of field experiments on philanthropic psychology – the largest pool of such experiments yet assembled, according to Professor Sargeant. The experiments would test new ideas on how to stimulate giving and add genuine value for supporters, helping fundraisers understand what to refine in their communications testing. Professor Sargeant believes this activity will “make a highly significant contribution to fundraising theory and practice”.Professor Sargeant said:“Wouldn’t it be good that, if a couple of years from now, every fundraiser knew the three key drivers of donor loyalty and at least two models of donor behaviour, not to mention the relationship between brand and giving and what drives trust in an organisation.”Launch eventThe Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy is launching at an invitation-only reception in London on Monday 3 February 2014.

Follow the news on Mongolia MongoliaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources United Nations MongoliaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources United Nations Help by sharing this information Mongolia: RSF calls for media reform to tackle corruption On 2nd November, the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva will conduct the third cycle of its Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on Mongolia’s human rights performance. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges UN member states to join its call for a media reform for guarantees of press freedom. Similar requests have been made by Globe International Center (GIC), a Mongolian press freedom NGO which in September denounced the government’s inaction since the last UPR in 2015.“RSF commends the positive steps taken by Mongolia in the past decades towards media liberalisation, but its regulation still requests significant reforms guaranteeing editorial freedom for journalists and a better protection of their sources”, says Cédric Alviani, RSF East Asia Bureau Head.Although Mongolia broadly respects the principles of liberty and media pluralism, its regulation still lacks basic legal protections for confidential sources and current defamation laws lead to journalistic self-censorship or harsh fines. In accordance with this review process, Human Rights Council member states contributing to the UPR cycle may choose to recommend that Mongolia adopt the reforms proposed by RSF.In June, RSF called on the Mongolian political parties and the candidates to voice their commitment to support newsroom independence to tackle corruption.Mongolia ranked 73rd out of 180 in the 2020 RSF World Press Freedom Index.

The case pertains to the tax demand of Rs 12,000 crore made by the Income Tax department from the international telecom giant with respect to its acquisition of the Indian assets of Hutchison Whampoa in 2007. The department contended that though the agreement between Vodafone and Hutch was executed outside India, since it related to assets in India, Vodafone was liable to make Tax Deduction at Source with respect to the consideration paid to Hutch.While the Bombay High Court upheld the tax demand, the Supreme Court, in 2012, reversed that verdict and absolved Vodafone of the tax liability. To overcome the verdict, the Central Government brought an amendment to the Income Tax Act later that year, with retrospective effect.Following a fresh tax demand on the basis of the amended law, Vodafone moved the arbitration tribunal in 2014, invoking the India-Netherlands bilateral investment treaty of 2013.The tribunal, in its ruling, said the government must cease seeking the dues from Vodafone and should also pay over ₹ 40 crore to the company as partial compensation for its legal costs, reported the NDTV.Incidentally, Vodafone-Idea owes the Department of Telecom dues to the tune of Rs 58,254 crore on account of the October 2019 verdict of the Supreme Court interpreting ‘Adjusted Gross Revenue'(AGR) in the spectrum licensing agreement to inlcude revenue from non-telecom sources as well.Recently, the Supreme Court allowed the telecom companies to pay off the AGR dues in a staggered fashion over 10 annual instalments.
