Peter Stephens | Sunday, 29th March, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE The FTSE 100’s recent decline means that the index now has a dividend yield of around 6%. That’s its highest ever level. It suggests that the index could offer strong income investing potential for the long term.Certainly, dividend cuts are highly likely in the short run. However, you may be able to generate impressive total returns in the long run, through buying high-quality businesses with solid balance sheets and affordable dividends. This could boost your ISA’s returns and improve your financial future.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…Return prospectsThe FTSE 100’s 6% dividend yield suggests that the index is highly undervalued at present. This could mean that investors have the chance to buy stocks while they trade on low valuations ahead of a potential recovery over the coming years.In the past, the FTSE 100 has always recovered from its bear markets to post strong recoveries. Sometimes, its recoveries have taken a matter of months, while in other cases they have taken a number of years. However, investors with long timeframes could capitalise on the FTSE 100’s cyclicality through buying stocks now when they are relatively cheap.Income potentialSome FTSE 100 companies have already started to cut or even postpone their dividends. This is likely to be a feature of the next few months. Lockdowns in various countries will cause a wide range of companies to experience highly challenging trading conditions.However, on a long-term basis, it seems likely that many companies will eventually reinstate dividends. Investors can improve their chances by purchasing businesses with highly affordable dividends and strong balance sheets. They may be less likely to cut their dividends, which may improve return prospects.Furthermore, buying stocks that are less likely to be negatively impacted by the current lockdown could be a sound move. Defensive sectors in essential industries may be better able to produce resilient levels of profitability, meaning they can maintain their dividend payouts.Risk managementClearly, the outlook for the UK and global economies is highly uncertain. Therefore, buying FTSE 100 dividend stocks in an ISA is a relatively risky move – especially in the short run.However, by diversifying across a wide range of industries and geographies you may be able to reduce your overall risk. Doing so may lower the impact of a specific company’s performance on your wider portfolio, and could improve your long-term returns.Although there is scope for stock prices to fall in the short run, in the long term they seem likely to produce a recovery. This makes the risk/reward opportunity of stocks look much more attractive than other assets, such as cash and bonds. Now could be the right time to buy a range of FTSE 100 dividend shares and hold them for the long run. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Episcopalians gather to ‘challenge mythology of violence’

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Participants in the Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence conference on April 11 will visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum which memorializes the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building by Timothy McVeigh, an act of domestic terrorism that killed 168 people and injured 600 others. The Field of Empty Chairs includes a chair for each life lost, including 19 smaller chairs for the children who died that day. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma] An Episcopal Church effort to have “a dialogue that our society has not been able to accomplish” about violence in general and gun violence in particular began April 9 here.Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence being held April 9-11 at the Reed Center and the nearby Sheraton Midwest City is meant to help Episcopalians renew their commitment to the Gospel call to make peace in a world of violence and “reclaim their role in society as workers for nonviolence and peace,” according to a press release from the church’s Office of Public Affairs.The gathering of 220 people, including 34 bishops, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, is centered around four pillars: advocacy, education, liturgy and pastoral care as “key avenues to address the culture of violence within and outside of the church,” the release said.“We have worshipped for far too long at the altar of the gun to solve our problems,” saysDiocese of Maryland Bishop Eugene Sutton at the opening session of the April 9-11 Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence conference Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceDiocese of Maryland Bishop Eugene Sutton asked the participants to create a “condemnation-free zone” for the three-day conference that he said was a gathering of Episcopalians from “across the spectrum of geographical, political and theological differences to learn from each other, to pray with each other and to discern what the spirit might be saying to us as church leaders.”Sutton invited people to “challenge the mythology of violence” in the United States that says violence will protect us from an unsafe and unpredictable world. Sutton said there is a “widely held myth that violence works and that non-violence is a pipe dream.”“We have become intoxicated with violence as the only effective means to achieve our personal goals or national aspirations,” he said. “We have worshipped for far too long at the altar of the gun to solve our problems.”Sutton said we have known for a long time that there is another way.“The Christian gospel has proclaimed for thousands of years that there is a cure but we have lost confidence in our day that that ancient solution will work,” he said.The gospel cure for violence is love, Sutton said, reminding people of Jesus’s commandment to love one’s enemies, bless those who curse you and pray for those who abuse you.Non-violent movements broke British colonial rule in India, ended apartheid in South Africa and drove the civil rights movement in the United States, he said, citing examples.The text of his remarks is here.Diocese of Oklahoma Bishop Edward Konieczny, who says he favors the constitutional right to bear arms, hopes the April 9-11 Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence conference will be a “model and an example to others of how different voices with often very opposite passions can come together with honesty, charity and grace for a common purpose.” Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceDiocese of Oklahoma Bishop Edward Konieczny told the gathering that he wasn’t expected to be invited into this conversation, much less be asked to host it. Konieczny, a former Southern California police officer who supports the constitutional right to bear arms, told the gathering that he has a concealed carry weapon permit.“On occasion I have been accused of being a gun-toting bishop,” he said, adding that he sometimes carries a gun while traveling in Oklahoma.Konieczny shared stories about his life as a police officer, including the time he switched shifts with a fellow officer who was killed by a man wielding a semi-automatic handgun on that shift.Another time, he said, he responded to a call and a mentally ill man pointed a rifle at his head and pulled the trigger. The weapon misfired.“But for the grace of God, I would not be standing here,” Konieczny said in an emotion-filled voice.Rather than become more hardened by those experiences, the bishop said, “I refuse to feel powerless that I can’t make a difference or have an influence.”Konieczny said he has seen many youths and adults be “renewed, reconciled and restored” by people who practiced the vows of what Episcopalians know as the baptismal covenant to respect the dignity of all people and strive for justice and peace.“We don’t have to figure out what to do; we just have to do that which we have already promised,” he said, adding that “it is going to take generations” to reverse a cultural reliance on violence that has been built over generations.“My hope is that this conference will be a model and an example to others of how different voices with often very opposite passions can come together with honesty, charity and grace for a common purpose,” he said.Konieczny urged participants as they meet over the next days to keep in mind all victims of violence, especially the 20 students and a security guard who were stabbed by a 16-year-old high school student at a high school in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, early during the day on April 9.The text of his remarks is here.The rest of the conferenceFollowing morning worship on April 10, Welby will address the gathering, followed by a press conference with Jefferts Schori. Concurrent workshops round out the morning. That afternoon the Rev. Chuck Jackson, associate pastor of South Grand Lake Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ congregation in Vinita, Oklahoma, will present an interactive discussion titled “Let It Begin with Me.” His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on Episcopal responses to violence. The day concludes with workshop sessions in the afternoon and evening.The April 10 sessions with Welby, Jackson’s presentation and the panel on Episcopal responses to violence are all due to be live streamed. The link is available here.On April 11, the conference continues with a morning ofworship, conversation and workshops. In the afternoon, participants will visit the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum. The memorial and museum memorialize the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building by Timothy McVeigh, an act of domestic terrorism that killed 168 people and injured 600 others. Some survivors of the bombing are due to make a presentation to conference participants.The gathering concludes with Eucharist at St. Paul’s Cathedral, less than two blocks from the site of the Murrah bombing. The cathedral was damaged by the 1995 blast. Jefferts Schori will preach. Dinner, featuring a concluding speech by Diocese of Newark Bishop Mark Beckwith, follows at the cathedral.A schedule and list of workshop topics and presenters are here.ENS and others are tweeting from the conference using #peaceokc.— The Rev.

A-lab has designed a new residential building in Oslo. The housing project is now one of the candidates for the Oslo City Architecture award 2018. Sæter was also shortlisted to WAF 2017 in the housing category. With a view over the Oslo fjord, very good light conditions and public transportation nearby, this plot was ready for more. Sæter Terrasse, situated in Nordstrand Oslo, aims to be an answer to Oslo’s need for urban density near communication hubs outside the inner-city areas. What originally was a plot with two single-family houses now has 34 apartments, big and small. The building consists of volumes and stories that adjust to different contexts and density, and the façade materials play with the Nordic light conditions and different seasons.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeyScale and densityThis area of Oslo, like many of the boroughs that surround the inner-city area, consists of mainly lower density areas of residential housing. One of the major architectural challenges is to “bridge the gap” between these different typologies. The building consists of volumes and stories that adjust to different contexts and density. Facing southeast, the site and the building gradually rises from a height of 2 and 3 stories to 5 stories in the south.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ivan BrodeyBy varying the distance of the vertical facades from the regulated building line towards the main road Ekebergveien the façade creates different vertical levels that bring down the overall scale of the building and creates a series of different private outdoor areas. The first floor has a commercial space with direct entrance from the urban street, whereas the inhabitants of the building entrance from the private gardens from the southeast and northwest. All the apartments have private balconies and 31 of 34 apartments are dual aspect apartments, with views to the west and outdoor garden in the east. Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeyMaterials and lightThe main façade material is Alutile sandwich metal plates. The aluminum metal coating is slightly matt and reflects very well the shifting and often intense light conditions of the Nordic summer and winter, allowing the facades to reflect the dawn and sunset colors which can vary from intense pink, dark blue, warm golden as well as a matt metallic sheen. In contrast, the balconies are treated with a long-lasting oil/varnish that gives a uniform warm brown coloring on the sides and roof as well as the floor. This outdoor area is in continuation of the living room with large window doors spanning the entire apartment width bringing in daylight. The outdoor areas in the east/south have daytime sun and all apartments have afternoon and evening sun. The roof has private terraces and is otherwise covered in sedum grass that changes color with the seasons and helps regulate and bind surface water from rain.

We’re now looking for 300 more community and social enterprises to come forward over the next three years, whether they are start-ups or existing enterprises looking to expand, diversify or grow.”Information on how to apply for the Northern Impact Fund is available on the Key Fund site. North of England investor in community and social enterprises Key Fund has announced its intention to invest in 100 enterprises per year for the next three years, with £10m of new funds.The new funds are being announced at its launch event today. They include a £5.5m Northern Impact Fund, supported by Access – the Foundation for Social Investment, with funding from Big Society Capital and the Big Lottery Fund. Key Fund has also secured £4.5m of new finance direct from Big Society Capital, to support general investment activity.Key Fund’s mission is to invest in enterprises that make a real difference to local communities. All of its investments are made to enterprises turned down by mainstream finance providers, particularly those with a high social impact in disadvantaged areas.In the last year Key Fund invested a total of £10m in 201 enterprises, which received from £5k to £300k each. According to Key Fund, the investments created 37 new businesses, created 293 jobs and safeguarded 188 jobs, and included East Street Arts, which received a £110,000 loan to renovate a building in Leeds and create a residential Art Hostel and creative hub. Eudaimonia, which provides affordable, healthy ‘social’ eating to help address social isolation and improve community health through its Super Kitchen, received a £90,000 loan to help it purchase a vehicle and ancillary equipment.Nicola Greenan, external relations director for the Art Hostel (pictured), said:“Even though it’s a strong business model because it’s completely new and we’re a charity, it was difficult to get high street lending, especially in the current economic climate. Without Key Fund’s support, the project wouldn’t have happened.”Matt Smith, CEO of Key Fund, added: Advertisement Melanie May | 28 October 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

How Will Interest Rate Hike Impact the Corn Market

first_img By Gary Truitt – Dec 18, 2015 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News How Will Interest Rate Hike Impact the Corn Market SHARE Facebook Twitter How Will Interest Rate Hike Impact the Corn Market Gentry told the farm show audience that there will likely be several more interest rate hikes in the next two years and that will hurt US exports by making them cost more to foreign buyers. He does not see this being a major drag on demand, “But in the grand scheme of things, it is not going to be a game changer for commodities.” Bill GentryFor the first time in almost a decade, the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates. How that will impact the commodity markets was a topic covered in the Hoosier Ag Today seminar at the Indiana/Illinois Farm Show on Thursday. Bill Gentry, with Risk Management Commodities in Lafayette, says the hike in the cost of money generally is a negative for agriculture, “It is going to be a bit of a headwind for commodities in general because higher interest rates strengthen the value of the dollar, but much of this may have been anticipated by the market. It is our assessment that the dollar market has anticipated this, and we may actually see a short term drop in the value of the dollar.” He said there may be an opportunity this winter for producers to price some of their 2015 crop, “There may be a short rally before Christmas and then another opportunity after the first of the year.” Gentry does not see a flood of corn coming onto the market from Argentina as some have predicted. During his presentation, Gentry predicted a likely high point in corn prices would be in the $4.20 area and near $9.00 on soybeans. He said, even with declining exports, there will be enough demand to keep prices from going too much lower, “When you look at the balance sheet, our livestock feed demand will be good and our ethanol demand will be steady.” He added the recent blend allocations for bio diesel have put some strength in the soy oil market, “I am cautiously optimistic this will be enough to sustain it for the time being.” Previous articleHouse Passes Tax Extenders PackageNext articleMartin Models Don’t Point to Catastrophic Spring Rain Again Gary Truitt How Will Interest Rate Hike Impact the Corn Market SHARElast_img read more

The Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board regulatory authority denied it was to do with DRIK’s activities and said it was part of a government enquiry following complaints about ISPs.DRIK also hosts meghbarta.com, the site of an anti-globalisation group very critical of the government. At the time of banglarights.com’s launch, Meghbarta had posted articles about the local human rights situation and attacks on human rights activists which reportedly annoyed some politicians.In November 2001, the government also cut off the phone lines of about 60 firms offering Internet services. The telecommunications minister said this was because the companies could not get their professional licences renewed. But the companies said it was done to stop people using the Internet to make cheap phone calls abroad instead of going through the state-owned phone company. This practice, common in Bangladesh and permitted in most countries, is not allowed by the government.The police have stepped up their monitoring of e-mail of journalists and political activists. In early 2002, the Islamist newspaper Inqilab published private e-mail messages of journalist Shahriar Kabir that had clearly been intercepted by the security services. The pro-government daily was at the time attacking Kabir as a traitor in the pay of India. During a crackdown by the right-wing government at the end of 2002, police seized the computers of several journalists, including Saleem Samad, the Reporters Without Borders correspondent. A climate of fear developed and several reporters and human rights activists told Reporters Without Borders they no longer used e-mail addresses supplied by national ISPs because messages might be monitored by the police.

Police have stepped up their surveillance of the e-mail of some journalists and political activists.
