That’s because it brought with it the world’s youngest ever female CEO to take a company public. And the Bumble share price soared, opening publicly at $76, after debuting at $43 the day before. This gave it a market cap valuation of $13bn (£9.4bn). Bumble’s share price peaked at $79, but has since fallen below $72. So does this US stock look like something I should consider investing in?Should I invest in Bumble stock?Bumble is a social networking platform that consists of a dating app, business networking arm (Bumble Bizz) and space to make friendships (Bumble BFF). The company also owns dating app Badoo and UK gay dating app Chappy through a recent acquisition.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…There are a few things I look for in a company before buying shares as a long-term investment. Leadership is one of those, along with a competitive edge and room for growth.I’m impressed by the leadership publicly presented by Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd and her team. I think it’s always good to see strong leadership and a sense of true ownership of a company. And it seems to me that the 31-year-old founder clearly represents this attitude.I also think it’s important to understand a business model if I’m going to invest in it. While I understand what Bumble is, I don’t know that it’s got enough of a distinctive difference from its competition. It’s got the dating app, which is unique in that “women make the first move”. This is designed to encourage a safe and respectful dating experience devoid of abuse and intimidation. It’s certainly a welcome change from some of the seedier offerings available. However, is it enough to maintain its edge?Highly competitive spaceThe dating space is evergreen because there are always people looking for love. Therefore, it can hold up well in a recession. However, it’s quite saturated and I get the impression users are easily bored, jumping from one app to another with ease. I don’t think it would take much for a new contender to arrive on the scene and steal its thunder. Especially considering how far Bumble has come in just seven years.Match Group is Bumble’s chief competitor, but I find it concerning that the two companies have been involved in legal tangles in the past. Hopefully that’s behind them now, but management in these high-profile firms seems to comprise a fairly small pool of people. Burning bridges between them so early on, may not bode well for the future.Those added extras, being able to network and socialise in a platonic way, mean Bumble might keep users for a lot longer than competitors that only offer the dating option. However, those features are arguably in competition with Microsoft-owned LinkedIn and Facebook.I like the story behind the business and can see room for growth. But its early days, and for now, I’m not tempted to invest in Bumble shares. I’ll keep it on my watch list and see how it goes.last_img read more

What Rugby World Cup fans can expect in Central Japan

first_img TAGS: Japan Find out about the fanzones around Toyota and Shizuoka as well as other attractions in the area LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 27 October 3-8pm, Semi-final2 November 3-8.30pm, FinalShizuoka Prefecture plans to set up Omotenashi Areas – multiple-event zones – between the Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa and nearby railway station, Aino, on match days. Those zones will be lined with rows of stalls offering local specialties such as Fujinomiya Yakisoba (noodles fried with vegetables and pork crackling), as well as a variety of local products including green tea.Action stations: Japan will play matches in Toyota and Shizuoka (Jiji Press)There will also be live shows of traditional Japanese music before the matches, as well as fireworks after them to celebrate the efforts made by both teams.Here are the Shizuoka Omotenashi Areas opening hours…28 September 11am-9.30pm4 October 1.30-9.50pm9 October 11am-9pm11 October 2-9.50pmHow to get thereThe Shinkansen is a simpler and smarter way to travel between Tokyo and the Central Japan area. It only takes one hour and half to reach Nagoya from Tokyo by bullet train, without the hassle of a security check, while enjoying a magnificent view of Mount Fuji from a seat on the right-hand side of the car. JR-Central offers a free app to book and manage your Shinkansen ticket, handy for securing the best seat.What to seeUkai, or cormorant fishing, is a traditional business dating back more than 1300 years and is similar in nature to falconry. The fisher, in a traditional dark attire with water-repellent straw skirt, controls as many as 12 cormorants.Go fish: Cormorant master Shuji Sugiyama in Gifu (Getty Images)When the fisher calls the birds back, they discharge their catch of sweetfish, which is prized among the Japanese. A loosely-attached collar made from hemp keeps the larger fish in the cormorant’s throat pouch and allows the smaller ones to be swallowed as their reward.A strong bond between the fisher and each of the birds is vital for successful fishing. A Ukai master would describe their cormorants as partners or family; so strong is the bond that the fisher keeps retired birds until they live out their lives.This traditional way of fishing used to be popular throughout Japan, but now it has become a rarity. The two rivers in Central Japan, Nagara River in Gifu and Kiso River in Aichi, are the rare places where one may see the most impressive performances of cormorant fishing.What to eatSweet, tender, juicy, melt-in-the-mouth… no written words are enough to explain the supreme taste of Wagyu, the Japanese super-beef. While Kobe beef has pioneered the export of Japanese beef and is probably the most well-known brand of Wagyu, the Central Japan area offers three prominent Wagyu brands that parallel Kobe in quality – Matsusaka, Omi and Hida.Good cut: Wagyu beef from Hida cattle (Getty Images)The secret of Wagyu lies in its fat. The Wagyu meat contains lots of unsaturated fat with a very low melting point, some as low as 13°C, which is less than half as low as regular beef. This fat does not come as white streaks running through the meat, but is evenly distributed, like the pattern of marble. The result is a meat that literally dissolves and releases its rich flavor in the mouth.Matsusaka beef comes from Mie Prefecture, Omi beef from Shiga Prefecture, and Hida beef from Gifu Prefecture. Try it as a steak, sukiyaki or shabushabu – it will be bliss on the tastebuds.What to doAsaichi, the morning market, has long been a feature of rural Japan. While most of them have not survived to this date, two of the remaining few are held in the Central Japan area.One of them is in Wajima, Ishikawa Prefecture. It is open 8am to noon every day bar the second and fourth Wednesday every month. With 200 stalls packed into a 360-metre stretch of the street, it is regarded as the best morning market in Japan.Since Wajima is a fishing port, seafood can be found at virtually every stall. You can buy fresh fish just off the boat and have it made into mouthwatering sashimi, or get a steamed abalone sliced up to go for later enjoyment. Advertising FeatureWhat Rugby World Cup fans can expect in Central JapanWith a week to go before the Rugby World Cup kicks off, two stadiums in the Central Japan area are awaiting fans from all over the world.The City of Toyota Stadium in Aichi Prefecture is known for its steep and elevated stands, from which fans can command a close and unhindered view of the action below. It is regarded by many as one of the best stadiums to host RWC 2019 matches.In Shizuoka Prefecture, the Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa sits on a hill, and this location has an added bonus: of the 12 World Cup venues, it is the only one from which Mount Fuji can be seen at close range. Supporters can take a short walk to a viewpoint that offers magnificent scenery of the highest mountain in Japan.What a view: Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa with Mount Fuji in the backgroundHere are the matches being played at these venues…23 September Wales v Georgia (City of Toyota Stadium)28 September Japan v Ireland (Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa)28 September South Africa v Namibia (City of Toyota Stadium)4 October South Africa v Italy (Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa)5 October Japan v Samoa (City of Toyota Stadium)9 October Scotland v Russia (Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa)11 October Australia v Georgia (Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa)12 October New Zealand v Italy (City of Toyota Stadium)The Central Japan area – which encompasses the nine Prefectures of Aichi, Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui, Nagano, Gifu, Shizuoka, Mie and Shiga, and includes the three major metropolitan areas of Nagoya, Shizuoka – is getting ready to treat fans from across the globe with Omotenashi, the Japanese spirit of hospitality. And you can experience that at the World Cup fanzones.Match venue: The City of Toyota Stadium will host four World Cup gamesAichi Prefecture and the city of Toyota will co-host a fanzone at the Sky Hall Toyota, where all matches held at the City of Toyota Stadium and more will be shown live on a big screen for free. Sky Hall Toyota is an indoor arena within a 15-minute walk of Toyotashi station on Meitetsu railway, close to the stadium itself.Live music performances will be held before matches and the venue will be equipped with a bar as well as a variety of food stalls offering local specialties, like pork cutlets with miso sauce.Here’s the schedule for the Aichi Fanzone…20 September 3-10pm, Japan v Russia23 September 3-10pm, Wales v Georgia28 September noon-10pm, Japan v Ireland, South Africa v Namibia5 October noon-10pm, Japan v Samoa12 October 10am-10pm, New Zealand v Italy13 October 3-10pm, Japan v Scotland19 October 3-9.15pm, Quarter-finals20 October 3-9.15pm, Quarter-finals26 October 3-7pm, Semi-final Striped delight: Japanese players applaud fans after a match at the City of Toyota Stadium(Getty Images) Fresh produce: Fruits on sale at the morning market in Takayama (Getty Images)In stark contrast to Wajima, the morning market in Takayama, Gifu Prefecture, is dominated by farm produce. Almost all of the fruits and vegetables found there are locally grown, some of them organic. Different produce like tomatoes, peaches, grapes, pears, apples and persimmons occupy the stalls according to the seasons.It is open 7am to noon from April to November to 8am to noon from December to March.last_img read more

David Chee interprets as Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori delivers a sermon to a meeting of the Diocesan Synod of the Diocese of Taiwan. Photo/Richard Schori[Episcopal News Service] Drawing on her experiences during a tour of Episcopal and Anglican dioceses in Asia, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached at the opening service for the Annual Synod of the Episcopal Diocese of Taiwan on March 2.Noting the challenges facing people in many nations — poverty, homelessness, addiction, isolation, slavery, war and political upheaval — Jefferts Schori asked, “Where is the light? Where is hope for a different future?“Jesus’ response is to challenge us to embrace that suffering and hopelessness and let it be transformed by love,” she continued. “When he says, ‘those who lose their life will find it,’ he means turning toward that suffering rather than away from it. When we do, we will discover joy and life, rather than loneliness and hopelessness. There may still be captivity around us, but we have been set free to work toward a different reality.”Losing your life, she said, means working with tsunami survivors in Japan, assisting farmers in the northern Philippines, advocating for peace and reunification in the Korean peninsula, helping gambling addicts in Macau, breaking the cycle of drug and alcohol addiction in U.S. rural areas, offering healing and help to rape victims in Africa, aiding migrant workers everywhere, and seeing that children all over the world are educated so they can build a promising future.“Losing your life in order to find it is primarily about turning yourself inside out, giving yourself away to love the world into a new future,” Jefferts Schori said. “That’s what it means to be the light of the world — to let the light planted within us shine out, and dispel the dark.”The full text of the sermon follows.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori visits the kindergarten at St. James’ Church, Taichung, Taiwan. Photo/Richard SchoriTaiwan, one of the 110 dioceses of the Episcopal Church, is the last stop on Jefferts Schori’s three-week visit to Anglican Communion churches in Asia, including the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, China and Hong Kong. She was accompanied in Taiwan by Peter Ng, the Episcopal Church’s global partnership officer for Asia and the Pacific, and Richard Schori, the presiding bishop’s husband.During her time in Taiwan, the presiding bishop and her team also visited St. James’ Episcopal Church in Taichung, Taiwan, on Feb. 29, accompanied by Bishop David Lai. St. James’, which was founded 41 years ago at the request of U.S. servicemen, operates a popular kindergarten that serves 330 students ages 2 to 6. The kindergarten has a sister kindergarten in Boston, and the two schools occasionally exchange teachers. St. James’ also has a community service program and sponsors classes for all ages, including lessons in English and other languages. Its congregation, under the leadership of the Rev. Charles Chen, has funded 12 churches in the Philippines.Also on Feb. 29, the presiding bishop’s party toured Tung Hai University in Taichung, an ecumenical university of which the Episcopal Church of Taiwan is a founding member. Guided by a campus official, they visited the “Luce Chapel,” named after the Rev. Henry W. Luce (1868-1941), an Episcopal missionary who arrived in China in 1897. His elder son, Henry R. Luce, was the founder of Time, Life, and Fortune magazines.On March 1, the group visited St. Johns’ University near Taipei, founded by the Episcopal Church 45 years ago, and St. Stephen’s Church, Keelung, a small mission in a depressed town that ministers to children and distressed families.—Richard Schori contributed reporting for this story.– – – – – – – – – –Taiwan Diocesan SynodMarch 2, 2012The Whole Church ServingThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchGreetings from the rest of The Episcopal Church, who pray for you. When Isaiah challenges the people to be a light to the nations, he could be speaking to this part of the body of Christ. We are not only present in many nations, but we are meant to reach beyond those boundaries to all the other nations of the world, shining light in darkness, proclaiming love where there is hate and division, speaking in languages and ways that other nations can understand.Isaiah wrote to a people in exile, to refugees and hostages held for ransom, in pledge for those who remained in their occupied homeland. In some sense we are all held captive, waiting and working in eager anticipation for the world God intended at creation – a world of peace and justice for all peoples. Isaiah wrote to a people who were feeling hopeless, challenging them to become a witness to the new thing God is always doing, to be a light to other nations also in captivity.We, too, are still captive, along with those who surround us. The ills and suffering of the present age are not so different from Isaiah’s day, or Jesus’. People go to bed hungry, some sleep in subway stations or on the street. Others live in the prisons of addiction and grievous illness. Many live surrounded by the violence of war or the violence in their own homes and local communities. Some live in nations oppressed by overlords and tyrants. Countless numbers of children and adults are wage slaves, doomed to eke out a living hour by hour and day by day with little hope for anything more than dying young and exhausted. That reality is known in the poverty of the countryside as well as in wealthy city centers, where many people live lonely and disconnected lives even in the midst of crowds. Some are still sent off to prison for trivial crimes or reasons of conscience, or to labor camps where they disappear, forgotten. Where is the light, where is hope for a different future?Jesus’ response is to challenge us to embrace that suffering and hopelessness and let it be transformed by love. When he says, “those who lose their life will find it,” he means turning toward that suffering rather than away from it. When we do, we will discover joy and life, rather than loneliness and hopelessness. There may still be captivity around us, but we have been set free to work toward a different reality.Losing your life in order to find abundant life in Japan (Sendai and Tohoku) looks like working with tsunami survivors, teaching new job skills, sharing tea ceremonies with the displaced who are living lonely lives in temporary housing after their villages were destroyed.Losing your life in Shanghai looks like building homes for senior citizens, offering community and shelter to abandoned and lonely elders of many different faith traditions.Losing your life in the northern Philippines is building simple tramways for terrace farmers to haul implements, water, seeds, and crops up and down the steep and trackless hillsides.It means advocating for peace and reunification on the Korean peninsula, sending rice to those who are starving in the North, continuing to seek ways to bring fearful governments to the negotiating table, as well as bringing Anglicans together from across the world to learn the ways of peace.Losing your life means offering hope to gambling addicts in Macau, alcoholics in Honolulu, and drug addicts in rural communities in the United States. It means offering shelter, community, and hospitality to Filipino migrant workers in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and Saipan. It means advocating for just immigration policies everywhere, so that human beings might find decent and dignified ways to feed themselves and their families.Losing your life in Congo means Anglicans welcoming rape victims into shelters, where they can find healing and support for rebuilding their lives. Those women have had their lives taken away from them by violence, violence repeated as they and the children born to them are shunned and discarded by their husbands, families, and churches. Would you lose your life for these human beings despised by their own society?People of all ages discover new life in schools around the world, begun and supported by people who lose themselves in the work of teaching. Hong Kong is a province of some 30,000 to 40,000 yet serves several times as many school children. The Diocese of Haiti teaches 80,000 from preschool through university. Liberia is slowly rebuilding from civil war through the human capital developed in diocesan schools. Children in Taiwan are finding unexpected abundance in the kindergartens of this diocese. A man named Paul Rusch lost himself in love for the Japanese people beginning in the 1920s. He was expelled as the Second World War began, but he returned afterward to start a farming school, teaching desperately hungry people how to raise dairy cattle in the mountains. Today the milk and ice cream of that farm support an environmental program that teaches a new ethic for engaging the earth.Losing your life in order to find it is primarily about turning yourself inside out, giving yourself away to love the world into a new future. That’s what it means to be the light of the world – to let the light planted within us shine out, and dispel the dark. As the psalmist says, “weeping may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). When we embrace the weeping of the night, we begin to partake in that creative dawn, that shedding of light into the world, and we begin to be a light to the nations.Will you take up your cross? Will you embrace the suffering around you, and let it touch your heart? Will you let love flow through you to heal that brokenness? Those who do will find their own lives renewed and redeemed in the process. That is the road to resurrection and new life. That is the direction in which the morning light dawns.Embrace the suffering around you, and you will discover what Isaiah dreamed of: “Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the LORD has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his suffering ones.” May this season of Lent bring a new willingness to see the suffering around us and embrace them. That is the road to peace and light and life abundant. Peace and light be with you!

Breaking News: Charles Krauthammer dies at 68

first_img Please enter your name here Legendary conservative intellectual Charles Krauthammer, whose columns and commentary shaped American politics for generations, has died. He was 68.From CNN MoneyKrauthammer’s death was confirmed by the Washington Post, where he had been a columnist for more than 30 years — an extraordinary run that was a testament to his larger-than-life status.Krauthammer was one of the best-known columnists in America. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1987. He also earned a National Magazine Award in 1984.But he had to curtail his work last summer for health reasons. And on June 8th, Krauthammer announced that he had “only a few weeks left to live.”He was confronting an aggressive form of cancer, so he informed his readers that he was ending his column.“I leave this life with no regrets,” he wrote in the farewell message. “It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”Krauthammer was also a longtime commentator on Fox News. Fox’s website published a tribute to him on Thursday afternoon.Fox called him the “dean of conservative commentators” and “arguably a Renaissance man,” describing his mastery “in such disparate fields as psychiatry, speech-writing, print journalism and television.”Indeed, Krauthammer was a master of multiple mediums. Krauthammer regularly appeared on Fox’s “Special Report” program until last summer. The program’s anchor Bret Baier tweeted on Thursday, “R.I.P. good friend. I am sure you will be owning the panel discussion in heaven as well. And we’ll make sure your wise words and thoughts – your legacy – will live on here.”Multiple generations of journalists and commentators said they were heartbroken by his passing.“Gutted by this news,” Meghan McCain tweeted. “The greatest political commentator of my generation — a true conservative icon. I will miss him and his commentary terribly.”“God rest Charles Krauthammer’s soul,” CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter wrote. “Let us reflect on the thoughtfulness, curiosity, and class he brought to our national conversations.”In a tweet, Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron said Krauthammer’s death was “a huge loss to vigorous and civil debate on public policy.”Krauthammer had to step away from both jobs last August for surgery to remove what he called “a cancerous tumor in my abdomen.” There were numerous complications.When Krauthammer shared the devastating news about his prognosis earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence paid tribute to him in a statement.Pence said the columnist’s “wit, his wisdom, and his tireless defense of Western values have made an indelible mark on the minds of millions of Americans.”Rupert Murdoch, the executive chairman of Fox News, said in a statement at the time, “Charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at Fox News. His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer. His words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come.” Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter TAGSCharles Krauthammer Previous articleMr. Rogers, when we need him mostNext articleNew Wekiva Basin plan going into effect next month Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 June 21, 2018 at 8:05 pm Reply Mama Mia May he rest in peace.

Please enter your email address here Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply To the lady, Samantha Settle, on Apopka Then and Now, that has extremely painful pleurisy, the painful inflammation of the membrane between the inner and outer lung lining, and asking for help….are you sure you have pleurisy? I had the same horrible pain, that I couldn’t hardly breathe, I was gasping in short breaths, and it felt like a sharp knife sticking in my ribs, and all my relatives said I had pleurisy, when I had pneumonia. I couldn’t even push open a store door, or our truck door. I went to the urgent care, and was x-rayed out of state, and later to the hospital here in Florida, and it wasn’t pleurisy at all, it was a whole series of fractured ribs down both sides from violent coughing, and some old fractures from other things too, that showed up on the CT scan. Have you gotten a CT scan, or at least an X-ray at your doctor’s office? If you had a respiratory infection illness, such as pneumonia, and with your collapsed lung, you could have fractured ribs, instead of pleurisy, just saying….otherwise, I am sorry, I don’t know what meds to take to help pleurisy, as all I got was oxygen treatments at the urgent care, some super strong Vicodin for pain, that you probably can’t even buy in this state now because of the drug crackdowns, that knocked me loopy, and then a a shot in the butt, didn’t know what drug it was, unless it was penicillin, I suppose….I wish you well, as it is horrible when you are in extreme pain, and can’t hardly breathe, plus trying to sleep, and turns in the bed, are hell, when you are in this shape. God bless you Samantha, I truly hope you get well soon. Maybe some inhalable steroids, not sure though, as they are not for everybody……… June 21, 2018 at 7:29 pm The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

USA qualify for 2011 World Cup after beating Uruguay

first_imgTuesday Dec 1, 2009 USA qualify for 2011 World Cup after beating Uruguay The United States have booked themselves a place at the Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand following successive wins over Uruguay.In their first match in Montevideo, the USA picked up a narrow 27-22 victory. In the second leg though, at home in Florida, Eddie OSullivans side won convincingly, 27-6.They will be in Pool C for the New Zealand hosted World Cup, where they will face Australia, Ireland, Italy, and one other European qualifier.Captain Todd Clever scored two tries, with Louis Stanfill and Kevin Swiryn also crossing for tries in Fort Lauderdale, an unlikely setting for an international rugby match.Many believe that the United States are the sleeping giants of world rugby, and that with the correct systems in place and exposure to the sport, could soon be a dominant force.Coach OSullivan is pleased with the progress the side are making, and the way they performed against the South American side.“It’s tough to hit the ground running after not being together since July, and although we qualified, which was our ultimate goal – they were a little rusty early on.“I can’t be too hard on them, though, they got the job done and you can’t forget that we scored eight tries in the last two games against Uruguay.”Theres no doubt that the Eagles qualifying for the World Cup is great for the sport in the United States as the profile will be raised a notch once again. They did it in style last time around with the try of the tournament. Hopefully they can replicate that, and more, in 2011.
