Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. 2020 was a forgettable year for many UK shares, but some thrived. For example, industrial metals, which gained unexpectedly as China’s government spending took off. FTSE 100 shares in this sector mostly rose as one.More recently, the commodity rally got broader. 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…As Covid-19 vaccines were developed, oil prices joined the party. Brent crude is now at almost double the levels it was at in November last year. Now precious metals’ price have started rising again too. Rising inflation and a big enough price fall quite likely makes them attractive again. They have been somewhat out of favour as investors turned bullish in late 2020, after running up earlier in the year.Whichever way we look at it, commodity prices are strong. This ties in with the idea of a commodities supercycle under way. A supercycle is a long-term, sustained increase in prices. I think this is great news for UK shares in commodities. Here are 10 stocks I would consider buying, divided into three categories:#1. Precious metals’ glitterThe FTSE 100 gold and silver producer Fresnillo delivered strong results earlier this month and even increased its dividends. The FTSE 250 gold miner Centamin is another one to consider. Its share price has fallen from 2020’s highs and its dividend yield is an eye-popping 9% right now.The Chilean miner Antofagasta is focused on copper, but also produces gold. With both precious and industrial metals in demand, 2021 and the near future is a double-win for it. #2. Oil producing UK shares gainFTSE 100 oil biggies BP and Royal Dutch Shell had an awful 2020, with losses and dividend cuts. They are back in the game, though, with the sharp rise in crude oil prices. As the economy recovers, oil demand could stay strong keeping prices buoyed. Even though they are not high-growth stocks, their dividends are far more attractive when their prices are at least stable. A strong market for oil in the foreseeable future should ensure that.  #3. Industrial metals boom continuesIndustrial metals demand was strong, and will likely increase because of the huge US fiscal stimulus. FTSE 100 miners like Rio Tinto, Anglo American, BHP, Glencore and Evraz are poised for more gains, based on this. I want to mention Anglo American in particular here, which is also a big platinum producer – both a precious metal and one that can be used in electric vehicle (EV) batteries. EVs are expected to be dominant in the future, which could bode well for it. Risks to note for these UK sharesBefore investing in these UK shares, though, I think it is important to consider the risks involved in buying each of the stocks. For example, Antofagasta with an expensive earnings ratio of over 50 times may see some share price fall. Oil companies’ long-term future still depends on how well the pivot to climate-friendly energy sources. And industrial metals’ miner Glencore’s shares suffered from corruption charges in the past. In summary, the big picture is a good starting point. But before buying these UK shares, I would also look at their individual stories. last_img read more

Who is Liam Williams: Ten things you should know about the Wales full-back

first_img. Good times in the coal injection pic.twitter.com/x1sVvHJi7S— Liam Williams (@SanjayWills) November 20, 20183. No regional academy picked up the young Williams, so he went to work as a scaffolder at the Port Talbot steelworks, operating at heights of up to 300ft. It’s clear where his comfort in the air comes from! Who is Liam Williams: Ten things you should know about the Wales wing Capable of covering any position across the back three, Liam Williams is known as one of the best aerial players in the world.He’s won Six Nations, Champions Cup, Pro14 and Gallagher Premiership titles, making him one of the most decorated players in the northern hemisphere.

Pan y Rosas recibió subvenciones de la Zona de Iniciativa de Misión. Foto del Comité de Rescate Internacional.[Episcopal News Service] El Rvdmo. Michael Curry, en sus tres años como Obispo Primado, ha definido regularmente a los episcopales como parte de “la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús” subrayando el llamado de la Iglesia a la evangelización.El impulso de la Iglesia Episcopal hacia una mayor evangelización no es nuevo. La asunción de Curry de su autotitulado papel de “director general de evangelización”continúa años de crecimiento en el apoyo organizacional y económico de la Iglesia para tales empeños.“Creo que teníamos una tendencia hacia un incremento en nuestra obra de evangelización y de fundación de iglesias antes de la elección de Michael Curry como obispo primado”, dijo el Rdo. Frank Logue, miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo con un énfasis de larga data en la evangelización. Curry ha aumentado esos esfuerzos desde 2015, dijo Logue.La Convención General aprobó $1,8 millones para fundación de iglesias y Zonas de Iniciativa de Misión en el trienio 2013-3015, y $3,4 millones se asignaron para tales ministerios de 2016 a 2018. Al Comité de Evangelización y Fundación de Iglesias, que preside Logue, se le ha asignado una resolución (A005) que aprobaría $6,8 millones en gastos en el transcurso de los próximos tres años para avanzar a partir de los éxitos logrados en estos “santos experimentos”.Algunos estudiantes aprenden a jugar ajedrez en la sesión de 2017 del Ministerio Episcopal Appleton en una escuela libertad de su Fondo para la Defensa de la Infancia. El ministerio se benefició de una subvención de Zona de Iniciativa de Misión. Foto del Ministerio Episcopal Appleton.“Veo que hay un movimiento dentro de la Iglesia para invertir en esta área”, dijo Logue. Y si bien la fundación de iglesias desempeña un papel importante —Episcopal News Service  destacó recientemente varios ejemplos de exitosos beneficiarios de subvenciones—  la Iglesia está invirtiendo en innovación en todos los niveles, incluidas las congregaciones establecidas y por diócesis.Hasta ahora, se han remitido ocho resoluciones al Comité de Evangelización y Fundación de Iglesias, aunque muchas más pueden añadirse para el 6 de julio, la fecha límite de presentación [de resoluciones]. Entre ellas hay una medida (A030) presentada por el Consejo Ejecutivo para renovar la financiación de un pequeño programa para subvencionar la evangelización en $100.000.Esas subvenciones están limitadas a $2.000 por congregación y hasta $8.000 por diócesis o ministerios regionales, y usualmente respaldan eventos puntuales en lugar de la obra continúa de fundación de iglesias, explicó Logue. Al igual que las fundaciones de iglesias, algunas de estas iniciativas más pequeñas pueden proporcionar modelos para nuevos ministerios en el ámbito denominacional.“Hemos visto que suceden algunas cosas buenas con pequeñas cantidades de dinero”, dijo Logue, que es canónigo del Ordinario en la Diócesis de Georgia.La evangelización es una de las tres prioridades que la Convención General ha fijado para el actual trienio, junto con la reconciliación racial y el cuidado de la creación. Las tres servirán como puntos focales para sesiones conjuntas y separadas de la Convención General en una nueva serie de discusiones en paneles llamados TEConversations [Conversaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal].El diálogo sobre la evangelización tendrá lugar a las 2:30 PM del 7 de julio, y el panel estará integrado por la Rda. Lauren Winner, sacerdote y autora; Alan Scarfe, obispo de Iowa, que dirigió [campañas] de avivamiento en todas las congregaciones de su diócesis el año pasado, y el Rdo. Daniel Vélez-Rivera, fundador de iglesias en la Diócesis de Virginia. El diálogo sobre la reconciliación racial es el 6 de julio y el cuidado de la creación será el tema del 10 de julio.Todas estas prioridades conforman la misión de la Iglesia Episcopal  y se relacionan entre sí, dijo el obispo de California, Marc Andrus, que es copresidente de un organismo asesor que presentó una resolución (la A019) sobre la interrelación de la evangelización, la fundación de iglesias y el cuidado de la creación. La resolución del Consejo Asesor sobre la Mayordomía de la Creación pide que se cree un equipo de trabajo para estudiar y estimular esas conexiones.“En verdad no hay cosas separadas”, dijo Andrus, y si bien muchas fundaciones de iglesias ya enfocan su trabajo incorporando en su evangelización, la reconciliación racial y la mayordomía medioambiental, él espera que el equipo de trabajo propuesto proporcione las bases para hacer de ese enfoque algo habitual.“Un enfoque integrado de fundación de iglesias y evangelización es una manera sana de evangelizar”, afirmó. “ Se relaciona con el único espíritu de Cristo, que no está dividido. Cristo no favorece una causa justa por encima de otra”.La Rda. Stephanie Johnson, otra copresidente del consejo asesor, se muestra de acuerdo.“Al reconocer que el cuidado de la creación es central a nuestra fe, entendemos que la reconciliación con todas las criaturas de Dios es parte de quienes somos”, dijo Johnson, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s] en Riverside, Connecticut.Esto también podría extender el alcance de la Iglesia a generaciones más jóvenes, lo cual fue otra consideración aludida en la resolución que presentó el Consejo Asesor sobre la Mayordomía de la Creación.“Para ellos es importante saber que la Iglesia vela por su futuro y el de las generaciones que vendrán después”, añadió Johnson.Algunas resoluciones asignadas al comité de evangelización proponen continuar con la labor que ya está en marcha, tales como la resolución presupuestaria presentada por el Grupo Asesor Génesis sobre fundación de Iglesias y la resolución del Consejo Ejecutivo sobre pequeñas subvenciones para la evangelización. El Consejo Ejecutivo también presentó una resolución (A031) para la creación de un nuevo cargo de funcionario del personal para ayudar a administrar la red de fundación de iglesias.Otra resolución presentada por el Grupo Génesis (A006) pide el acopio de información demográfica  sobre los líderes de la Iglesia que se encuentran detrás de los nuevos ministerios de evangelización, de manera que los datos puedan compararse con la información sobre las comunidades a las que intentan servir.La resolución no pide ninguna acción ulterior en respuesta a esa información, pero Logue, que es el enlace del Consejo Ejecutivo con el Grupo Génesis, dijo simplemente que tener esa información puede alentar a los ministros a pensar más en la representación. Por ejemplo, un ministerio de participación latino se beneficiaría de líderes latinos, del mismo modo que tiene sentido tener a una persona joven al frente de un ministerio orientado hacia la generación Y [o del milenio].Otra resolución le pide a la Convención General que le recomiende a la Iglesia los resultados de los organismos asesores. Uno de ellos es la Carta de la Evangelización (A029) redactada por el Comité de Ministerio y Misión Locales del Consejo Ejecutivo para promover un lenguaje común para describir y llevar a cabo la obra de la evangelización.El obispo primado Michael Curry en la noche del 17 de noviembre ayuda al comienzo de la campaña de avivamiento de tres días en la Diócesis de San Joaquín. El inicio del evento tuvo lugar en el campus de la Universidad del Pacífico, en Stockton, California. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Curry ha tomado la delantera en los últimos 16 meses de presidir, en general, los avivamientos públicos en diócesis de toda la Iglesia, pero pese a lo que el Obispo Primado dice acerca de ser parte del “movimiento de Jesús”, muchos episcopales pueden no entender plenamente el llamado a la evangelización que subyace en ese término, dijo Logue. En consecuencia, la Carta de la Evangelización es un punto de referencia para la acción comúnLogue, enfatizó también que es importante no interpretar la evangelización como una sugerencia de que la Iglesia Episcopal o los episcopales tienen todas las respuestas. La evangelización “también nos cambiará”, expresó.El Equipo de Trabajo sobre Aprovechar las Redes Sociales para la Evangelización presentó una resolución (A081) en que le pedía a la Convención General que diseminara su ponencia, “Teología práctica de la evangelización episcopal: cara a cara y en el ciberespacio” [A Practical Theology of Episcopal Evangelism: Face-to-Face and in Cyberspace] que se incluye en su informe del Libro Azul.El informe hace una profunda inmersión teológica en lo que significa promover la evangelización en el mundo contemporáneo donde gran parte de nuestra comunicación con otras personas tiene lugar vía Internet.“Nuestro llamado a compartir las Buenas Nuevas no desaparece cuando entramos en Facebook o Instagram”, dice la ponencia. “Tenemos la oportunidad de seguir la invitación del Espíritu Santo en una aventura jubilosa y sorprendente que nos cambia tanto como cambia a las personas y comunidades con las que compartimos”.Gran parte de los consejos del documento pueden ser útiles para los evangelistas episcopales que operan en cualquier plataforma, desde esquinas de calles hasta el ciberespacio. Walker Adams, el presidente del equipo de trabajo, dijo que las redes sociales son una valiosa herramienta para la evangelización, pero un evangelista digital sigue necesitando fundamentar esa labor en una trayectoria de fe personal.“Creo que sería mejor si dedicáramos algún tiempo a pensar quiénes somos, en qué creemos y cómo lo expresamos”. Dijo Adams, miembro de la Diócesis de Misurí Occidental que ahora trabaja en admisiones en Sewanee: la Universidad del Sur. “Si no podemos proponer alguna especie de conceptos básicos para compartir tu propia historia y tu relación con Jesús, realmente no importa cómo ponerlo online.La Convención General pidió la creación del equipo de trabajo en 2015, para crear un currículo para la evangelización digital. Al mismo tiempo, agregó Adams, los empeños de Curry como director ejecutivo de evangelización, “realmente puso la evangelización a la vanguardia” incluida la contratación de la Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga para la evangelización, la reconciliación y el cuidado de la creación, y de Jeremy Tackett, evangelista digital. El equipo de evangelización  de Curry creó algo llamado los instrumentos de la evangelización, concebidos para adiestrar a los episcopales en todos los niveles en nuevos métodos de compartir su fe.It’s Social Media Sunday this Sunday. Time to share the Good News in word and image. #SMS17 #chsocm #evangelism pic.twitter.com/BjdQAWFjua— Episcopal Maryland (@episcomd) September 21, 2017El equipo de trabajo de Adams presentó una segunda resolución (A082) en que solicitaba de la Convención General $100.000 para proseguir ese adiestramiento. Una opción, dijo él, sería identificar, en cada diócesis, una persona responsable de la evangelización que pueda trabajar con congregaciones y feligreses. En lugar de esperar porque el personal del Obispo Primado visite cada congregación, puede resultar más efectivo para preparar a más adiestradores regionales.“Creo que la evangelización no es algo que pueda esperar”, afirmó Adams. “La Iglesia está volcada a la evangelización ahora. La Iglesia está entusiasmada”.Spellers le dijo a ENS en un email que ella, también, se siente entusiasmada respecto a dónde habrá de llegar en la Convención General el continuo diálogo sobre la evangelización.“Al entrar en esta Convención General, nuestra Iglesia tiene docenas de pujantes nuevos ministerios con la orientación, el apoyo y el adiestramiento que la Convención ha soñado”, dijo Spellers. “Hemos visto dos cumbres y conferencias de La Evangelización es Importante y hemos lanzado una red de evangelistas episcopales. Nos hemos asociado con diócesis para organizar seis avivamientos episcopales y hemos adiestrado a más de mil evangelistas en esas comunidades anfitrionas. Hemos conseguido una serie de recursos globales, multilingües, en la Internet que llamamos los Instrumentos de la Evangelización y un nuevo programa de subvenciones para la evangelización.“Si la  ‘evangelización episcopal’ era antes un oxímoron, esos tiempos han pasado”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Located in East Hampton, New York and situated on a narrow property atop a bluff overlooking Gardiner’s Bay, Lion’s Head replaces a vacation home shared by two brothers and their families for over 25 years before it was destroyed by fire.  Since originally building on the site, new regulations have been established and the families have grown in size. The new structure responds to these needs while preserving and enhancing the casual summertime lifestyle long enjoyed by its owners.  More photographs and drawings of Lion’s Head by Bates Masi Architects following the break.

Keeping Livestock Safe During Extreme Cold

first_img Previous articleNew Board of Directors Elected for IBCA and IBCNext articleFSA Employees to Get Paid This Week, Happy to be Back at Work Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Jan 29, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Keeping Livestock Safe During Extreme Cold Facebook Twitter SHARE Keeping Livestock Safe During Extreme ColdSubzero temperatures are common across the state and most of the Midwest today. This will require some special precautions for livestock producers.It has been a long night and will be a long day for livestock producers with cattle or sheep in the field.  Dr. Kyle Shipman, from the Indiana Board of Animal Health, points out the three key things to keep in mind are shelter, water, and food. “It is important to make sure animals have some kind of shelter,” he stated. “If a barn is not possible then a windbreak where they can get some shelter from the wind chill.” He added it is important that these areas be kept clear of snowdrifts so animals do not have to exert too much energy to reach the areas.Keeping water sources unfrozen will be vital and will be a constant chore the next few days. Shipman said special care also needs to be taken to provide extra food.“They will need high quality hay or other grain to give them the energy to keep warm.”  He warned producers about giving livestock too much food or introducing new food they may not be used to.Dr. Shipman reminds non-farmers who see livestock out in this kind of weather that they are especially adapted to handle the cold.“They have the innate ability to seek out strategies to deal with the cold, like finding the low place in a field or huddling together to stay warm. They also have a very dense winter hair coat that helps keep them well insulated from the cold.”He urges producers to watch for any sign of injury or other abnormal behavior during this extreme cold. Shipman added that producers need to take precautions for themselves while working in these extreme conditions. Keeping Livestock Safe During Extreme Cold Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Down, Down, Down for Mortgage Rates

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Who says mortgage interest rates are headed toward the 5 percent mark? For the week ending January 19, rates declined for the third consecutive week and are now headed back toward 4 percent.The average 30-year FRM dropped by 3 basis points over-the week, down to 4.09 percent after reaching a two-year high of 4.32 percent to start 2017, according to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS). The average 15-year FRM declined by 3 basis points down to 3.34 percent for the week ending January 19.“After trending down for most of the week, the 10-year Treasury yield rose following the release of the CPI report,” Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sean Becketti said. “In contrast, the 30-year mortgage rate fell three basis points to 4.09 percent, the third straight week of declines.”Bankrate.com posted similar numbers in its weekly national mortgage rates survey, with the 30-year fixed rate averaging 4.18 percent—the third straight week of declines reported by Bankrate. The average 15-year FRM remained unchanged from the previous week at 3.41 percent in Bankrate’s survey.“Mortgage rates fell for the third week in a row, despite a slight upward creep in inflation and wages,” Bankrate.com reported. “The Consumer Price Index went up 2.1 percent in 2016, which is higher than the Federal Reserve’s inflation target. The Fed also noted that businesses are seeing upward pressure on wages. The inflationary news didn’t push mortgage rates higher, though, as geopolitical uncertainty dominated.”According to Bankrate, the average monthly payment is $975.70 for a $200,000 mortgage loan at the current 30-year FRM rate of 4.18 percent.Prior to the three straight weeks of declines, mortgage rates had increased for eight consecutive weeks. Many analysts were predicting future increases for mortgage rates up to within the 4.5 percent to 5 percent range by the end of 2017, especially following the Fed rate hike in December. But mortgage rates have gone the other direction. Mortgage rates hovered slightly above the record low of 3.31 percent (set in late 2012) for much of 2016.
