On days like these, it’s easy to be optimistic, but I’m looking back to learn lessons from the past year. One year ago, we witnessed one of the steepest and scariest market crashes. As the FTSE 100 index plummeted, I nicknamed spring 2020 ‘Meltdown March’.The FTSE 100 climbs and then collapsesOn 31 December 2019, the FTSE 100 closed at 7,542.4 points. Before Covid-19 cases dominated the news, the Footsie climbed to its 2020 closing peak of 7,674.6 on 17 January. However, as coronavirus infections multiplied, the UK market first slid and then collapsed. On 23 March 2020, the FTSE 100 had been crushed, closing at 4,993.90. That represented a loss of over 2,680 points since late January. Thus, in mere weeks, the index had collapsed by more than a third (34.9%) from its 2020 high. Crikey.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A year ago was a great time to buyAs Baron Rothschild remarked, “Buy when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own”. When share prices are slumping, the brave and wise take a deep breath and buy quality stocks. Ultimately, when you take a 20-year view, even the biggest FTSE 100 crashes eventually fade into history.As the market crashed, I decided to take the plunge. Within days of the low, I took 50% of my family wealth that was sitting in cash and sank it into US and global stocks. Since its closing low of 2,237.40 on 23 March 2020, the US S&P 500 index has soared more than three-quarters (77.6%). Happily, my ‘buying the dip’ proved to be a highly lucrative financial decision. In fact, thanks to my aggressive ‘crash buying’, my wife and I could retire immediately (but we won’t).I wish I’d bought these cheap UK sharesAs I write on Monday afternoon, the FTSE 100 hovers around 6,711.33. That’s almost 1,720 points — more than a third (34.4%) — higher than its 2020 closing low. Hence, my hunch that US stocks would bounce back higher than cheap UK shares after the crash proved correct. Then again, the individual gains of Footsie members have been widely dispersed, with some shooting out the lights. For the record, these are the five highest gainers among FTSE 100 shares over the past 12 months:Entain (gambling and sports-betting) +206.4%Weir Group (industrial engineering) +138.1%Ashtead Group (equipment hire) +132.7%Flutter Entertainment (gambling and sports-betting) +126.1%Evraz (steelmaker and miner) +122.3%As you can see, all five FTSE 100 winners have at least doubled in value in the past 12 months, with Entain (formerly GVC Holdings) more than tripling. Following the imposition of lockdowns, Entain and its rival, Flutter, profited hugely from the shift to online gambling. As a result, both shares have soared spectacularly over the past year.After more than halving by Meltdown Monday (23 March), Weir Group has rebounded as oil & gas prices have rocketed. Likewise, shares in Evraz (whose largest shareholder is Roman Abramovich, owner of Premier League team Chelsea FC) have shot up as demand for its raw products has recovered.Finally, could I have predicted any of these super-sized share surges a year ago? I might have done for Entain and Flutter, had I realised that my own shift to online sports betting and poker was happening across the globe. Even so, I’m happy with the decisions I made back then, so I won’t complain!

Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Atlantic City, New Jersey] It’s a “family reunion” like no other: 250 adults, young and older, are gathered at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino for 46th annual meeting and conference of the Union of Black Episcopalians, a confederation of more than 35 chapters and groups in the U.S. and the Caribbean, with members in Canada, Africa and Latin America.The conference brings together African American Episcopalians and those from the African and Caribbean diaspora for five days of worship, workshops, addresses and fellowship.“Some of our constituents belong to historically black churches, others come from multicultural churches, and others come from the Midwest and the West where there are fewer black Episcopalians, so this is one place where they come together,” said Annette L. Buchanan, UBE national president, and a member of St. Augustine’s Church in Asbury Park, New Jersey.“Not only is it intergenerational, but it is across the African diaspora; we understand that we are one community and that we can learn from each other.”The Rev. Canon Sandye Wilson, rector of St. Andrew and Holy Communion Episcopal Church in South Orange, New Jersey, preached the sermon during the June 29 opening Eucharist of the 46th annual Union of Black Episcopalians conference June 29-July 3 at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSTrue to the conference’s theme “Renewing our Commitment to the Work and Ministry of Social Justice” the June 29 to July 3 assembly includes workshops such as “Eliminating Racism and Renewing Our Commitment to Each Other, to Church and to Community” and “Awake, Arise: Blueprint For A Vibrant Congregation.”“We like to talk a good story about being open and welcoming places … but were not always so good about inviting people in and having a place for people who are different than we are,” said the Rev. Canon Sandye Wilson, rector of St. Andrew and Holy Communion Episcopal Church in South Orange, New Jersey, in a sermon delivered during the June 29 opening Eucharist.“And the reality is that we’ve got some internal work do so that we can do the work of the Gospel.”Wilson referred to the song “God Has Work for Us to Do”:“Till all the jails are empty and all the bellies filled;Till no one hurts or steals or lies, and no more blood is spilled;God has work for us to do, God has work for us to do…”“So my friends, if there is anything I would say to you tonight as we begin to recommit ourselves to social justice is that God has work for us to do,” said Wilson, adding that it’s first the hard work of  “looking in the mirror and recognizing that we’ve been created in the image of God.”“The beauty of the body of Christ gathered as the church is that there is space for all parts of the body to thrive and when those parts are working together, some amazing things happen,” she said.The design of the multigenerational conference includes:workshopstime to socialize and networkways to facilitate sharing at home diocese and churchesa focus on lifting up young adult and youth leadership.“We wanted to make sure that those who paved the way, our seniors, that they are here and we honor them, … and they serve as role models to the middle tier and youth and young adults,” said Buchanan. “We have young people who because they have been to the conferences strive to become … clergy and leaders within the church because they … have been given leadership roles as well.”Bishop Barbara Harris, the first woman bishop in the Episcopal Church, and Diane Pollard, a long-time General Convention deputy from the Diocese of New York and a trustee of the Church Pension Fund, during the opening Eucharist of the Union of Black Episcopalians 2014 Annual Conference. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSUBE traces its history back to Absalom Jones, the first African-American priest. For more than 200 years, the black leadership has led the fight against racism in the Episcopal Church and UBE continues to work collaboratively as an advocate for social and economic justice.Recommitting to social justice serves as a reminder for members not to “rest on their laurels in terms of whatever gains we’ve made,” said Buchanan.  The theme also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the advent of the civil rights movement, and the parallel struggle for rights in church.“The struggle is still ahead,” said Buchanan.In regard to the church, one thing UBE is concerned about is the vitality of its more than 330 historically black congregations, a large percentage of which, Buchanan said, “are not healthy.”It was something the Rev. Canon Edward Rodman, the John Seeley Stone professor of pastoral theology and urban ministry at Episcopal Divinity School, pointed out during his workshop “Black Folk and the History of the Episcopal Church: A 21st Century Perspective”: Churches that are not self-sufficient and that don’t pay their diocesan assessment lose their voice.In her June 30 keynote address, Lorraine C. Miller, who recently finished a seven-month term as interim president and CEO of the NAACP, talked about social justice and how churches can work together and with other nongovernment organizations to initiate change in their communities.“The cause of social justice is needed more than ever,” said Miller, who prior to serving the NAACP was the 35th clerk to the U.S. House of Representatives, the third woman and first African American to serve in the position.Annette L. Buchanan, UBE national president, foreground, and Lorraine C. Miller, former interim president and CEO of the NAACP, who delivered the keynote address June 30 during the 46th Annual Conference of the Union of Black Episcopalians. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSMiller outlined three issues to consider as UBE evaluates its social justice engagement strategy: the need for greater civic participation, particularly to address the assault in recent years on voter rights; the scourge of HIV and AIDS that disproportionately affects the African American population in the United States; and community efforts to engage minority men between the ages of 18 and 25, a group that is disproportionately unemployed and overrepresented in the criminal justice system.Miller remembered a song she sang in church as a child growing up in Fort Worth, Texas – “Brighten the Corner Where You Are” – and how its meaning wasn’t clear to her until later in life.“I had no real idea of what that meant until I became an adult … it means I may not individually be able to change the world but I can certainly make a difference in my sphere of influence, in my home and my neighborhood, I can make a difference, so what we do with HIV/AIDS, we do with young men, we do with voter participation it’s up to us, we are, you are the leaders,” said Miller.“You are sitting in this room because you are a leader and God has given you the wisdom and power to know what to do.”Anita George, who is renowned in the Episcopal Church for racial justice work, conducted a workshop, “Eliminating Racism and Renewing Our Commitment to Each Other, the Church and Our Community” on June 30 during the Union of Black Episcopalians 2014 Annual Conference. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSWhat today is the UBE was founded on Feb. 8, 1968, at St. Philip’s Church in New York by 17 black priests as the Union of Black Clergy and Laity. Its goal was to remove racism from the church and society and to stimulate the growth of black membership; another of UBE’s concerns, said Buchanan, is being intentional about raising up leaders and clergy leadership “in our churches, identifying young people who have that gift and helping them to discern that.”The Rev. Canon Nan Peete, who is retired but serves as priest-in-charge of Church of Our Savior in Washington, D.C., echoed Buchanan: “UBE has always prided itself on including and welcoming young people. … They have a stake in the future if they have a stake in the present. It’s up to the elders to let them know they have value now and in the future.”The conference’s focus on social justice from an historical perspective and how it affects youth and young adults today is one way to prepare new leaders, said Alexizendria “Zena” Link, UBE’s national youth adviser.As a member of St. George’s Episcopal Church in Hempstead, New York, and president of the church’s youth group, Morenike Oyebode, 16, attended the conference to participate in the worship services, but also she was looking for ways to get more young people involved in the church.“Here at the conference we are learning to become one and work together as kids and become part of the church because many times outside the church kids don’t really know how to be involved,” she said. “I want to find new ways to keep the youth involved in our church because many times we don’t have youth in our church. Our youth are like 15 kids and that’s it, so I would like to bring more people to our church.”The outcome of the conference for those who’ve been around a while, Buchanan said, is “a personal recommitment to the work of racial and social justice in their own vineyard locally.”“You’re in the vineyard, you’re working hard, and then you are like, ‘Why am I doing this? I’m not seeing any progress,’ but you come back together with the preaching with the music, the workshops, and it kind of recharges you, like when you are at the end of the service and sent out again into the world to the work, that’s what this is, the sending out. “– Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Press Release Service Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ July 2, 2014 at 3:52 pm Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, a merged congregation of the two historic African American Episcopal Churches in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, extends greetings and felicitations to our brothers and sisters at the 2014 UBE gathering.

George North stars in emotive Gillette short film, The Honest Player

first_imgFriday Feb 3, 2017 George North stars in emotive Gillette short film, The Honest Player George North will start for Wales against Italy in the Six Nations on Sunday, and barring any major surprises, he’ll be on tour with the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand later in the year. Inspired by the classic Jim Telfer speech, Gillette have put together this short film.It’s called ‘The Honest Player’, and celebrates their sponsorship of the 2017 Lions.Featuring winger North and the emotive words of legendary Telfer, we get taken on a journey that includes George in his training and some classic footage of memorable Lions moments.“For George and the Lions, preparation off pitch leads to precision on it. For Gillette, it’s all about giving guys the precision tools to look their best and prepare for the day ahead,” Gillette said.  Still only 24-years-old, North already played a part in the victorious British and Irish Lions tour of Australia in 2013, when he scored a try in the first Test as he broke from the halfway line and beat four players.He scored again in the third Test as the series win was sealed, but perhaps the most memorable moment of the tour was that powerful fireman’s carry on Wallaby fullback Israel Folau.For Gillette, official sponsor of the upcoming tour, preparation and precision is key to success, so they will be with the Lions every step of the way as they take on their next big challenge.The upcoming tour consists of 10 games throughout New Zealand, between June 3 and July 8, including three Test matches against the double World Champions.“The pressure they’ll face is surmounted by nothing else. They need to be prepared both mentally and physically for what they’re going to face in New Zealand,” said Lions legend Telfer.Gillette will bring the partnership to life in all major retailers across the UK through a competition offering consumers the chance to win the ultimate trip to New Zealand to watch the Lions.

It is often difficult to create a sense of openness and continuity in multi-level urban homes. By allowing the staircases of this three-story structure the freedom to shift location on each level — defining a continuous flow of space and movement — we turn this challenge on its head, elevating the prosaic stairwell into the key architectural and unifying feature of the home.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteIn this four-level project, a series of stairwells take you from the lower garden level to the uppermost roof deck, each treated as a sculptural object and with the interior stairs uniformly clad in rift-cut white oak. On each level we permitted the stair to find its own best location, open to the concept of a vertical path which meanders through the home in a way that is more landscape, less urban.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteAlthough the living spaces are often compressed by the tight urban site, this meandering stairwell unites the home functionally, visually, and spatially, making it feel much larger than it really is.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteWe lifted a diminutive, 850 square foot Queen Anne Victorian and inserted a new garage and ground floor underneath. But our solution was somewhat more radical; given the opportunities of our down-sloping site, we created a two-car garage on a very steep ramp in order to free up the new street-level area for much needed family living space. This logical yet idiosyncratic move set in motion a series of further architectural decisions that define the project.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe hugely over-scaled stadium staircase in the living room actually hides the parking ramp below, creating additional social space for the long and narrow living room. For us, the over-scaled staircase is perhaps “odd” in a positive way; it is clear that there is likely some hidden reason for its being, yet totally unclear that that it results from the prosaic yearning for off-street parking. This stair then became a leitmotif for the entire project.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSan Francisco’s dense urban neighborhoods are based on a grid of narrow 25’ wide lots — conducive to the small defined rooms of a traditional Victorian, but challenging for modern California living with its premium on connection to natural light and the outdoors. With the width of the lots often further reduced with required neighbor setbacks on either side, we understand the imperative to go vertical – here we meet the challenge with a concept that is unusual and ultimately elegant.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessMartin Rein-Cano Explains the Importance of Dynamism in Landscape ArchitectureArchitecture NewsNew Digital-Physical Building Block System Aims to Make 3D Modeling Accessible to Ch…Architecture News Sharelast_img read more

first_imgOct. 11 − Today, after nine days of the people’s uprising here, Ibarra was again without buses or taxis, and many people were lugging heavy bundles of food through the streets. Classes at the schools have been suspended for seven days, and a view out the window showed only a cow walking along the street. Most information came from individual conversations face-to-face or on the phone. A community leader in the nearby besieged town of Esperanza said Oct. 9 that the military shot tear gas projectiles directly at the comuneros [large group of  united Indegenous people] confronting them, causing serious injuries. Betty Romero from the Ibarra City Council delivered food to the people there. The struggle is hard, but as Carlos Aznárez wrote in Resumen Latino Americano this week, “Ecuadorians are a tough nut to crack.” The Caranqui people who populate Esperanza are proud of their ancestors who have a history of resistance.Another Indigenous man who travelled 60 miles to Quito with members of his community near Otavalo said that the Salesiana Polytechnical University has given refuge to him and more than 1,000 other people. He said that the people in struggle definitely need food supplies. Ibarra residents responded to an Indigenous request and are collecting goods for the people in Quito. Ecuadorians from as far away as New York said they are contributing money in solidarity.The same Indigenous woman who led a ceremony Thursday night, Oct. 10, at the Obelisco in honor of martyred leader, Inocensio Tucumbi, was in the historic center of Ibarra the next day collecting contributions of food, items of personal hygiene and blankets for the Indigenous resistance in Quito. A self-employed grandmother of seven who lives in Quito, who was a supporter of the former government led by Rafael Correa and who survives precariously in the informal economy, said that the police viciously beat her, causing severe back injuries. She is being attended by family and is unable to rejoin the uprising.A middle-class friend who lives in Quito near the Salesiana University said that she is not in the streets but is helping deliver food to the marchers. She said she looks up to the Indigenous people as the heart of the resistance. A former supporter of Correa, she questions the motives of all the political parties, left and right. This view is common among people in the fragmented left. Moreno desperate for IMF loanIn a discussion with local residents in Ibarra, this woman said that the reason President Lenin Moreno bowed before the International Monetary Fund was that he was desperate for the loan: He had manufactured an economic crisis in Ecuador by forgiving the rich billions of dollars in taxes. All present shouted agreement with her observation.Billions of dollars are now fleeing the country, only to be hidden in financial paradises and tax havens like the United States. Analysis presented on confirmado.net reiterates what several Ecuadorian economists have noted. Ecuador’s return to neoliberal policies under Moreno will lead “in the medium term” to “dismantling national industry, science and technology innovation” and those who benefit will again be “the big importers, exporters, bankers and transnationals.” Confirmado.net added: “Several studies recognize that the adjustment measures proposed by the IMF leave a sequel of inequality, reduction of economic growth, increase of poverty, deterioration of working conditions, and the destruction of peace and social welfare.” (tinyurl.com/y5xravbh) Indigenous leaders in Quito are calling for comuneros in the Amazon region to shut down oil wells or block the transport of crude oil, which represents 29 percent of Ecuadorian exports. Some 31 percent of the oil is exported to the United States, according to Observatory of Economic Complexity. Diario El Comercio (Quito) reported that many food vendors and shops in the main coastal city Guayaquil are closed because the highways to the Andes are blocked, preventing the daily supply of vegetables, eggs and dairy products. Vendors who have produce to sell have doubled their prices.People have begun to occupy government buildings in more of Ecuador’s 23 provinces. As of Oct. 11, the list includes 10 provinces: Cañar, Pastaza, Chimborazo, Riobamba, Ambato, Tungurahua, Azuay, Bolívar, Napo and Morona Santiago. Radio Pichincha reports that the major bus terminal in Quitumbe in the south of Quito is only selling tickets for travel in one direction: to the coast. No buses are travelling north-south in the Andes or east to the Amazon. Losses amount to $5 million per day.Bosses call for repressionThe National Federation of the Chambers of Industry is reported to be calling for emergency action by the state armed forces to impose what it calls “law and order”: open the highways and prosecute the insurgent people, who it calls “the perpetrators, accomplices and collaborators, and the material and intellectual authors of the crimes that have been committed.”The title line of an Oct. 10 article in Resumen Latino Americano speaks volumes about a president who is out of touch with the people while the national police are apparently out of control: “Lenín Moreno spoke, offering dialogue, and a few minutes later his police brutally attacked the crowd peacefully surrounding the National Assembly/Numerous wounded and asphyxiated by the gases.”According to CONAIE, the Indigenous coalition called the general strike along with the union movement. Since Oct. 2, five people have been killed in confrontations with the army and police, 554 were wounded or injured, and many more have disappeared.It is possible that the U.S. is advising the police in Ecuador on how to repress the masses of people. An article in Diario El Universo from April 4 reported that the U.S. and Ecuador had signed a security agreement that includes technical assistance and allocation of resources.So far the government’s brutal repression and its attempts to criminalize what should be constitutionally protected resistance have failed. The uprising continues to grow.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Smith, Jr. and his team revealed no failed metrics among the servicers that were party to the National Mortgage Settlement in 2012.Smith’s summary, titled Update on Compliance, includes results for Bank of America, Chase, Citi, Ditech, SunTrust, and Wells Fargo. The compliance test includes a total of 33 metrics—29 originally set forth by the NMS and four more set forth by the Monitor in 2013. Thursday’s report covers the first half of 2015.“My tests show that servicers are adhering to the NMS’s servicing rules, which aim to give borrowers better experiences,” Smith said. “Among six servicers and over six months, my professionals and I uncovered no fails.”Thursday’s report does not include the results of compliance tests for Ocwen Financial for the first half of 2015. Smith said he was still currently testing Ocwen and he would release the results to the public when he is confident they are complete. Smith released his last update on Ocwen’s compliance with the terms of the NMS in October, at which time he revealed that the Atlanta-based servicer failed four metrics during the second half of 2014.Click here to see Smith’s complete summary released Thursday, Update on Compliance. Thursday’s report was the sixth for Bank of America, Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo. It was the fourth for Ditech and the first for SunTrust.The NMS was originally finalized in April 2012 between 49 states and the District of Columbia, the federal government, and five banks and/or mortgage servicers (Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, Ally/GMAC, and Wells Fargo). As part of the agreement, the five servicers were required to provide $20 billion in consumer relief and $5 billion in other payments. Ocwen falls under Smith’s supervision due to the servicer’s acquisition of mortgage servicing rights from a unit of Ally Financial, one of the original banks included in the settlement.SunTrust became party to the NMS in June 2014 when it settled with the DOJ for $968 million to resolve claims that the Atlanta-based bank engaged in improper mortgage origination practices as well as servicing and foreclosure abuses.Ocwen entered into a new consent judgment with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in February 2014 that requires the servicer to provide $2.1 billion in consumer relief and to comply with the servicing standards set forth by the NMS.
