Whether you are an accountant, an actuary, an adviser in financial services, or a lawyer - or even a business person advising the trustees of a pension scheme (perhaps looking after your own self-administered arrangement) - you need this series to understand the why, the how, the where, and the what of this topic.What of those who are just being introduced to trusts? Trusts are an essential part of business and financial planning life. There is little in life assurance or pensions, let alone overall wealth-preservation planning, that the subject of trusts does not impinge on. But which trust? What type of trust? Should there be an interest in possession or not? An absolute trust or should there be discretion? Who should be the trustee? Are your parents older than you are? It is not such a silly question; the listener will unearth the reason for the answer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terence O'Halloran.

Learn about Land Trusts with iMinds Money's insightful fast knowledge series. A land trust is an agreement whereby one party, the trustee, agrees to hold ownership of a piece of real property for the benefit of another party, the beneficiary. Corporations set up land trusts as intermediaries that hold and manage property on behalf of investors in return for management fees. Being a trust, they are legal entities that separate ownership from control with investors being the ‘beneficial owners’ giving them property rights while the legal title is held in the trust’s name. Land trusts are not only designed for investment purposes but can also be created as non-profit organisations for conservation or welfare pursuits.Since growing in use from the early 1990s land trusts have become a popular investment option. This is due to them providing the security of investing in ‘brick and mortar’ whilst offering other additional advantages. Investing in land trusts makes it possible for investors to own small parts of properties if they do not have the finance or do not wish to purchase the property outright. The lower cost of purchasing just a portion of a property can allow investors to diversify into a larger number of properties. This diversification reduces exposure to market fluctuations in particular property markets. Investing in land trusts also allows the investor to separate themselves legally from their property assets. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind. iMinds will hone your financial knowledge with its insightful series looking at topics related to Money, Investment and Finance.. whether an amateur or specialist in the field, iMinds targeted fast knowledge series will whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.iMinds uni 1.

First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can't bring himself to have her arrested - not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful. Instead, McCalpin agrees to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. March has no choice but to accept. But how can she manage the handsome trustee who controls her purse strings - when he tugs at her heart strings as well? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elaine Wise.

'In Teaching and Learning for Intercultural Understanding, Debra Rader has produced a clearly-structured, carefully researched volume which informs and encourages its readers to integrate intercultural understanding into their teaching, and also challenges them to reflect on issues relating to their own cultures, beliefs, values and attitudes. This new title promises to be a must-read for anyone with a concern for supporting the young adults of tomorrow in developing the skills and attributes that will be essential if they are to live peacefully with others in our increasingly complex world.' - Mary Hayden, Professor of International Education, University of Bath, UK 'This is a remarkable book, perhaps even a courageous one. Debra Rader&#8217;s appeal to teachers blends theory and practice into a narrative that is passionate and inspiring, urgent and compelling, with a mine of resources and ideas for lessons and activities. It will be a seminal text on how to address the most important educational challenge of our era.' - Terry Haywood, Trustee, Alliance for International Education and International Schools Consultant 'Debra Rader&#8217;s book is a deep dive into what intercultural understanding is, why it is vital to our global wellbeing, and how to foster it in children. Approachable, insightful, practical, and hopeful, it is a must-have resource for educators committed to making the world a better place, one child at a time.' - Rana DiOrio, author of the award-winning What Does It Mean To Be . . .?®children&#8217;s picture book series 'Digitalisation has connected people, countries and continents, bringing together a majority of the world&#8217;s population in ways that vastly increases our individual and collective potential. But the same forces have also made the world more volatile, more complex and more uncertain. More than ever, schools are called to help students see the world through different eyes, appreciate different cultures and divergent thinking, and to build a shared understanding among groups with diverse experiences and interests, thus increasing our radius of trust to strangers and institutions. This is easy to say, but really hard to accomplish in a classroom. This book provides a framework for how to do this, and not only that, it also illustrates in insightful and practical ways what it might look like when intercultural understanding is lived in our daily lives.' - Andreas Schleicher, Director OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, and Special Advisor on Education Policy to the Secretary-General 'This book is an excellent resource for the multicultural and multilingual children I teach. The literature recommendations are diverse, relevant to my students' lives, and consistently provide opportunities for meaningful conversations. The lesson plans have been transformative for all the students in my class, and have deepened their appreciation of and thirst to learn more about all cultures and languages. Through this learning, my entire class raised their awareness of how we can honor our differences, engage with one another respectfully, and each help make the world a better place.' - Grace Friedman, White Center Heights Elementary School, Seattle, WA, USA 'Teaching and Learning for Intercultural Understanding is a critical exploration on how, as educators, we can intentionally build the values and skills children need to engage positively in an ever-increasing intercultural world. The rich array of quality children&#8217;s literature featured, and the thoughtful and well-developed lesson plans that Ms. Rader has created to support the development of these essential skills offer valuable practical application for the classroom. Teachers will love them!' - Julia Alden, International School Leader and Educator 'With this thoughtful book, Debra Rader has given primary schools the gift of the &#8216;what&#8217;, &#8216;why&#8217; and &#8216;how&#8217; of intercultural understanding. Whereas previous experiences in developing intercultural understanding at the primary level may have been limited to food, flags and festivals, Rader&#8217;s framework provides us with components of intercultural understanding and language with which to dialogue about it
As the BBC approaches its century in 2012, it has become a national institution but one under constant financial and political pressures. The 2015 licence fee settlement was concluded in just five days, the BBC charter is due for renewal in 2017. The clouds are dark on the horizon; the political vultures are circling. It has a national place - but how many friends in high places? This comprehensive book examines the BBC's future from many angles. Is the licence fee sustainable in the long run? Is the size and scope of the BBC right? To what extent is the cloud of the Jimmy Savile scandal (and the abrupt resignation of the new director general) still hanging over the corporation? Does it properly reflect the nation(s)? Is the Beeb-bashing by the Right justified? The cast list of authors includes past and present BBC chairs, former members of the BBC Trust, past senior executives of the corporation, the leading media commentators of the day, top academics, trade unionists and media activists. Jon Snow, Channel 4 News presenter, contributes a Preface. The BBC Today is edited by Professor Richard Tait, former BBC trustee and editor-in-chief of ITN, Professor Richard Lance Keeble, author and editor of 30 texts on journalism and communication ethics, and John Mair, former BBC producer and university teacher. It is the latest in the Abramis 'journalistic/academic' series of 14 books dating back to 2007 and follows Tait, Keeble and Mair's Is the BBC in Crisis? (Abramis, 2014). On this, Professor Stewart Purvis, of City University London, commented in Television magazine: 'The book impresses most when it goes beyond the recent headline issues.'
When Charles Ping first arrived at Ohio University in 1975, the university was experiencing a decline in student enrollment and confronting serious financial challenges. But rather than focusing on its problems, Ping instead concentrated on Ohio University's potential. During the nineteen years that Ping served as president, he guided Ohio University in scholarship, research, and service while substantially increasing the size of the campus through the acquisition of The Ridges. 'What attracted me was, essentially, the richness of the campus in people and programs,&#8221; said Ping. A Conversation about Ohio University and the Presidency, 1975-1994 is an edited version of the transcript of videotaped interviews recorded in May and June 2011. 'It is a conversation between two old friends,&#8221; said Ping of the series of interviews conducted by Sam Crowl, Shakespearean scholar and now trustee professor emeritus.
