Download or read book Mass Media written by James B. Martin and published by Nova Publishers. This book was released on 2002 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mass media has become an integral part of the human experience. News travels around the world in a split second affecting people in other countries in untold ways. Although being on top of the news may be good, at least for news junkies, mass media also transmits values or the lack thereof, condenses complex events and thoughts to simplified sound bites and often ignores the essence of an event or story. The selective bibliography gathers the books and magazine literature over the previous ten years while providing access through author, title and subject indexes.

Download or read book Charity Commission written by Great Britain: Parliament: House of Commons: Committee of Public Accounts and published by Stationery Office. This book was released on 2013-06-04 with total page 48 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This report examines the Cup Trust and the Charity Commission's procedures for regulating charities. The Charity Commission (the Commission) registered the Cup Trust (the Trust) as a charity in April 2009, with a company called Mountstar - based in the British Virgin Islands - as its only trustee. Although the Trust generated ’income' of £176 million, only £55,000 has been given to charitable causes, and the Cup Trust claimed Gift Aid of £46 million. Despite its declared charitable aims, it is clear that the Trust was set up as a tax avoidance scheme by people known to be in the business of tax avoidance. The Trust does not meet the public expectations of a charity and it is unacceptable that the Commission has not been able to put a stop to this abuse of charitable status. The Commission began to investigate the Trust in March 2010 following concerns raised about its governance and fundraising. This investigation closed in March 2012. The Commission eventually concluded that it could not de-register the Trust as it was "legally structured as a charity", despite not being for exclusively charitable purposes. The Commission has not yet brought forward proposals to change the law to exclude organisations like the Cup Trust from the register. In the last 25 years, the Committee and the NAO have repeatedly found severe shortcomings in the Commission's performance, particularly in relation to investigation and enforcement. The Commission hardly makes use of its statutory powers, nor is it targeting its available resources to best effect.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Between 1975 and 1978, the Khmer Rouge carried out genocide in Cambodia that was, in many ways, unparalleled in modern history. Taking an explicitly geographical approach, this book argues whether the Khmer Rouge's activities not only led to genocide, but also 'terracide' - the erasure of space. It also provides a clearer geographic understanding to genocide and gives insights into the importance of spatial factors in geopolitical conflict.

Download or read book The Role of the Charity Commission and Public Benefit written by Great Britain. Parliament. House of Commons. Public Administration Select Committee and published by The Stationery Office. This book was released on 2013-06-06 with total page 238 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This report into the implementation of the Charities Act 2006 finds the Charity Commission being asked to do too much, with too little. The charitable sector is at the heart of UK society, involving millions of people and £9.3 billion received in donations in 2011/2012. Around 25 new applications for charitable status are received by the Charity Commission every working day. Among the reports findings are: one of the keys tests set by the Charities Act 2006 for determining charitable status-the public benefit test-is critically flawed; the Government should revise the statutory objectives for the Charity Commission, to allow the Commission to focus its limited resources on regulating the sector; the proposal to increase the financial threshold for compulsory registration of a charity with the Charity Commission should be rejected; charities should publish their spending on campaigning and political activity. PASC criticises the way the Charity Commission has interpreted public benefit under the Act. The Committee also considered the impact of face-to-face fundraising, or "chugging"-on the street or on the doorstep-and warns that self-regulation has failed so far to generate the level of public confidence which is essential to maintain the reputation of the charitable sector. The evidence was clear that the regulation of fundraising remains a concern for many members of the public. Two in three people have reported feeling uncomfortable as a result of the fundraising methods used by some charities.

Download or read book Princes at War written by Deborah Cadbury and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2015-04-09 with total page 523 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1936, the monarchy faced the greatest threats to its survival in the modern era – the crisis of abdication and the menace of Nazism. The fate of the country rested in the hands of George V's sorely unequipped sons: Edward VIII abandoned his throne to marry divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson; Prince Henry preferred the sporting life of a country squire; the glamorous and hedonistic Prince George, Duke of Kent, was considered a wild card; and stammering George VI felt himself woefully unprepared for the demanding role of King. As Hitler's Third Reich tore up the boundaries of Europe and Britain braced itself for war, the new king struggled to manage internal divisions within the royal family. Drawing on many new sources including from the Royal Archives, Princes at War goes behind the palace doors to tell the thrilling drama of Britain at war.

Download or read book Foreign Political Engagement written by D. Geldenhuys and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-07-27 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The 1990s have witnessed several major external initiatives to reshape the domestic political arrangements of countries. Because these have been collective foreign ventures, usually with the active collaboration of the target countries, the term intervention is ill-suited. Instead, Deon Geldenhuys introduces the notion of foreign political engagement to describe international attempts at remaking countries in the image of the West. South Africa, Kenya, Somalia, Russia, Cambodia, El Salvador and Haiti serve as case-studies to demonstrate this important theoretical rethinking of international relations today.
Download or read book 17 Carnations written by Andrew Morton and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2015-03-10 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For fans of the Netflix series The Crown, a meticulously researched historical tour de force about the secret ties among Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, the Duke of Windsor, and Adolf Hitler before, during, and after World War II. Andrew Morton tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, his American wife, Wallis Simpson, the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet king after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the duke's relations with Hitler. From the alleged affair between Simpson and the German foreign minister to the discovery of top secret correspondence about the man dubbed "the traitor king" and the Nazi high command, this is a saga of intrigue, betrayal, and deception suffused with a heady aroma of sex and suspicion. ,br> For the first time, Morton reveals the full story behind the cover-up of those damning letters and diagrams: the daring heist ordered by King George VI, the smooth duplicity of a Soviet spy as well as the bitter rows and recriminations among the British and American diplomats, politicians, and academics. Drawing on FBI documents, exclusive pictures, and material from the German, Russian, and British royal archives, as well as the personal correspondence of Churchill, Eisenhower, and the Windsors themselves, 17 CARNATIONS is a dazzling historical drama, full of adventure, intrigue, and startling revelations, written by a master of the genre.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the author of the Sunday Times Number One Bestseller Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House Rupert Murdoch is one of the greatest deal-makers alive. His companies possess extraordinary political and cultural power. Whether it is the Sun and the rise of Thatcher, BSkyB and the transformation of football, or Fox News and the war on terror, we have been living in the age of Murdoch since the late seventies. But who is he? What drives him? With unprecedented access to Murdoch and his inner circle, Michael Wolff chronicles the astonishing growth of the mogul’s giant media kingdom.

The resulting book is unrivalled in its intimacy and candour and tells a tale of business that is both the story of a man’s life, and the story of our times.
